Terracon provided geotechnical engineering, construction monitoring, and materials testing services, including performing a peer review for the project. The original geotechnical evaluation identified that the site was underlain by compressible clays and recommended a surcharge be placed. However, due to a fast-track construction schedule this was not feasible. Terracon subsequently recommended, designed, and monitored the installation of a pile foundation system. To meet the client's deadlines multiple pile driving rigs were used concurrently working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. Terracon also provided materials testing services related to earthwork, concrete, masonry, structural steel, exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS), and bituminous concrete construction for the building as well as for off-site improvements.
