BSL-3Ag Large Animal Housing FacilityGeolocation: 42.0234, -93.6256

Terracon provided subsurface exploration, engineering analyses, and consultation services during design, as well as observation, testing, and inspection services during construction. The project included the construction of a building for diseased animals requiring a high level of biological containment. The high-level containment area was constructed of reinforced concrete, with stringent settlement and crack control criteria. The design team selected drilled shaft foundations and six Osterberg load-cell tests were performed to verify shaft capacities.
