Geotechnical Challenges 

 

  • Evaluation of long-term settlement of perimeter embankment resulting from consolidation of 40-feet of Bay Mud underlying the site

  • Investigation and construction taking place in an environmentally sensitive environment continuously monitored by biologists and ecologists

  • Construction on soft ground within marsh

 

Innovative Solutions

 

  • Pile foundation design that could be installed with light-weight equipment

  • Use of lightweight, fiber-glass piles for boat dock foundations to facilitate constructability
