ASU Foundation Shoring

- Location: Tempe, AZ
- Completion Date: 1 Dec 2019
- Core Competencies: Earthwork
This project is located in the heart of Tempe, AZ on the Arizona State University Campus. The facility is a major part of the University’s plan to develop bioscience facilities that encourage research and development. The scope of work that was performed included site clearing & earthwork to prepare for the installation of the deep foundations.
Due to poor site soils, we drilled the foundations utilizing temporary segmental casing. This method was selected to reduce costs by preventing waste due to collapsing soil, providing increased safety to the crew, and delivering the project on time. By controlling the site beginning with earthwork and ending with completed foundations we delivered our client a seamless solution to solve a congested site.
