GEOMechanics served as the geotechnical consultant, performing a subsurface investigation, preparing a geotechnical report, and providing foundation design and construction services. Challenges included a thick layer of liquefiable soils and a tight construction schedule.
The Solutions Unearthed
- The liquefiable soils were estimated to have high settlements in a seismic event. We provided pile foundation options to resist high lateral loads during an earthquake.
- We performed load testing on driven piles and provided construction administration services during pile installation.
- Due to a demanding schedule and availability of materials, pile testing procedure had to be modified to ensure optimal performance.
