As an integral member of the project team, INTERRA’s technical services and provided expertise for this highly demanding and challenging project – scheduled for completion in August 2014 – has been highly varied.
The geotechnical scope of the project consisted of installing concrete pier foundations for each of the many needed trestles. The civil portion consisted of eliminating water leakage through the EB-1 basement walls from the sump pump and duct banks entering into the basement area. Additional civil engineering work included waterproofing the EB-1 basement walls and minor site grading. Finally, the project’s structural scope of work consisted of installing above ground trestles to support overhead electrical conduits and cables, the installation of a new foundation for new switchgear, and a foundation for a new transformer. Other structural work included repairing concrete spalling cracks within one of the basements.
