FPA performed a Geotechnical Engineering Assessment in connection with a proposed precast concrete parking garage. Our geotechnical assessment included the performance of test borings and the development of geotechnical engineering recommendations to facilitate the planning, design and construction of the parking garage. FPA also provided technical observation of the concrete and reinforcing steel installation as well as the installation and load testing for the drilled pier foundations for the parking garage. Over fifty drilled piers were installed which ranged from 3 feet to 6 feet in diameter. Additionally, we obtained field samples of the concrete utilized to construct the drilled pier foundations, returned the concrete samples to our in-house laboratory and subjected the concrete to compressive strength testing.
The project was awarded the 2016 Leading Infrastructure Award from the NJ Alliance for Action.
