In Dickson City, PA,
The Dreher Group identified the site of a former coal mine as an ideal location for a new Giant Foods supermarket, although it came with unusual challenges. Strip mining on the industrial site had left a mountain of culm, a mining byproduct that was unstable for construction. Dreher acquired the property from a railroad, built a new parking lot for an adjacent Dunkin Donuts, and used dynamic compaction – an extraordinary measure – to ensure that sub-surface conditions on the site would support the foundation before building the new Giant store.
