Terracon was hired to perform due diligence work and provide a geotechnical exploration for a proposed 4-story post-tensioned parking deck and 4/5 story split-level multi-family structure in Atlanta, Georgia. The site had previously been considered for development by multiple companies but due to poor soil conditions had not been purchased. Terracon's "thinking outside the box" and experience with a wide variety of foundation and soil improvement systems allowed the site to be developed, provided valuable cost savings to the Owner and shortened the construction schedule.
The Piedmont Newnan Hospital project consists of an eight-story main hospital building located in Newnan, Ga. In addition the main hospital building, auxiliary development plans include free-standing 3- to 4-story medical office buildings (MOB) and two multi-story parking decks. Terracon conducted preliminary geotechnical and environmental services on two properties being considered for the proposed hospital. Our data along with others was used to determine which site was ideal for the proposed development.
