Soil Borings at 550 Old Post Road Site
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter

November 4, 2018

Soil borings were performed at the BVFD's 550 Old Post Road property during the last week of October 2018 in order to get conclusive geotechnical data for engineering the foundation of the new building.

The decision to perform these borings prior to a bond vote and the start of construction proved beneficial, as the soil composition is quite varied and calls for a fusion of foundation techniques. Preliminary soil test results show that the building will have to be built on some kind of deep foundation system. Collaboration between the architects, structural engineers, geotechnical engineers, and pre-construction estimators began while the borings were still in progress to find the right balance of engineering, safety, building code, and economy to get the job done responsibly.
