  • Location

    Brooklyn, NY

The head of KC’s geotechnical engineering group worked on this project as an employee of another firm. The geotechnical scope included geotechnical investigation, subsurface exploration to determine soil conditions, seismic site loading and classification, determination of soil design parameters, and design and analysis of the deep pile foundation comprised of steel pipe piles. It also included the review of loading and allowable tolerance limits for the foundation, and the review of settlement, permeability, and seepage analyses for uplift on the existing building slab due to possible flooding issues.
