The head of KC’s geotechnical engineering group worked on this project as an employee of another firm. The geotechnical scope included the rehabilitation of the Brooklyn Bridge, where a new foundation was proposed for the existing Ramp C. As part of staged construction, temporary pile foundations with shoring towers were required to support the bridge with live traffic. The scope of work included review of boring logs, evaluation of subsurface soil conditions and design soil parameters, and design and analysis of 90-foot micro piles.
