Building Apartments at 1417, 1421, 1425 & 1427 Caddo
St., Dallas, TX–Geotechnical Study
A geotechnical study was performed
for four buildings planned for construction for Urban Lofts, Ltd./Interurban
Construction, Inc., located at 1417, 1421, 1425, 1427 Caddo Street in Dallas,
Texas. The object of this study was to complete the subsurface investigation at
the above referenced site to provide recommendations for foundation and pavement
designs. The purpose of this investigation is to determine foundation design
requirements for the construction of four new three-story buildings for Lofts,
each covering an area of 2,000 to 4,000 square feet. The proposed buildings
will be slab on grade, with steel trusses and a joist roof structure.
Las Cruces Federal Court House
buildings, Las Cruces, NM – Geotechnical study
geotechnical investigation was required to determine the existing soil
conditions at the site of the proposed new Las Cruces Federal Court House
buildings located between Church Street and Campo Street; and between Organ
Street and Griggs Street in Downtown Las Cruces, New Mexico. The site was being
used as a parking lot just north of the Runnels Federal Building, and south of
the Las Cruces City Hall. The project consists of two, interconnected, six
story buildings, with a single level underground parking garage. The site will
also have a plaza with an outdoor water feature, a set of monumental steps, and
several site retaining walls. The primary structural system for the building
will consist of a steel frame. Lateral loads will be resisted by dual concrete
shear walls and braced or moment steel frames located at the exterior and
interior of the building. The above grade floor systems will consist of a
reinforced concrete slab on a steel deck, acting composite with steel beams.
The floor system at grade will consist of a reinforced concrete slab on grade.
The geotechnical study provided recommendations for the foundation design
alternatives (deep and shallow foundation) design.
M. Harvey Taylor Bridge, Dauphin and
Cumberland Counties, PA
Structure Foundation Geotechnical Report presents the results of subsurface
investigations and geotechnical analyses for the proposed cast-in-place
(CIP) retaining wall and modifications to the existing wingwalls at the west
shore abutment of M. Harvey Taylor Bridge, Dauphin and Cumberland Counties.
The retaining walls were proposed in order to accommodate the new
4-foot-wide bicycle lanes being added on the west shore approach. Widening
of the abutment breastwall and modification or total replacement of the
U-type wingwalls will be required. The ends of the pedestrian underpass
should be modified to raise the height of the wingwalls and headwalls to
suit the widened embankment.
Berks County, PA
consisted of providing preliminary engineering, final design, and
construction services for the replacement of some portions of S.R. 2021-01B
in Berks County. Hydrologic & hydraulics analysis was performed to show
that it was safe to remove Abutment 1, and Piers 1 to 5 (six spans of the
multi-span bridge), and replace with embankment fill that was as high as 40
feet to bring the roadway to grade. Dr. Morohunfola was responsible for
geotechnical studies for the alternatives analyses, review of existing
engineering plans and geotechnical data, performing slope stability and
settlement analyses at five locations, prepared the required geotechnical
reports and special provisions for construction.
Interstate 80, Northumberland & Union Cos., PA, District 3-0
The work for this project consists of providing preliminary
engineering, final design for six bridges, and engineering services during
construction for I-80, Section 52D, located in Northumberland and Union
Counties, Pennsylvania. The project includes upgrading both eastbound and
westbound bridges and roadway on I-80 from just west of the interchange with
S.R. 15 to just east of the bridge over S.R. 1019, including improvements to
S.R. 15 and S.R. 0180/S.R. 0147 necessary to complete the upgrading of the
respective interchange areas. Dr. Morohunfola was responsible for
performing geotechnical analysis, including reinforced slope stability,
scour, retaining walls MSE/CIP), and preparing foundation (deep and shallow)
report for the project.
