Clark Site Contractors required additional equipment and tool storage at its Grand Island, New York yard.  Clark retained DE to complete a shallow test pit investigation, establish the proper geotechnical design parameters, prepare a suitable foundation design, and assist in the layout and inspection of the foundation construction for this new rigid steel frame building.

DE services included:

  • Test pit investigation in clay and saturated sand layers;

  • Determine critical load combinations and prepare reinforced concrete pier and footer design calculations and details;

  • Design and specification of concrete floor slab;

  • Preparation of Construction Drawings and Specifications; and,

  • Layout and inspection of foundation and slab construction.
