Sunset Industrial Park Development

Ground Improvement with Soil Mixed Columns and Rigid Inclusions

As part of an ambitious development project at Sunset Industrial Park in Brooklyn, GEODesign was retained to provide geotechnical engineering for a new, state of the art Federal Express package distribution center. The buildings are supported on full displacement auger cast piles designed and load test inspected by GEODesign. In addition, we designed and performed a ground improvement program to reduce the large settlements expected outside the building areas due to soil added to the site to raise the grade.

Sunset Industrial Park Development

Providing both geotechnical and structural consultation, we developed deep foundation designs for new warehouse and distribution facilities being constructed at this site, with a combined footprint of over 300,000 square feet.

In order to mitigate settlement within the soft, compressible soil layers, we developed a comprehensive ground improvement plan, implementing soil mixed columns and rigid inclusions outside of the building areas.

Challenges included soft organic soils and obstructions caused by previous development.
