Project Name: Central Station Commercial Development
Location: Louisville (Jefferson County), Kentucky
Facility Type: Commercial C10
GEM Services: Geotechnical / Construction Monitoring
Project Description: Soft alluvial soils, uncontrolled fill and earthwork restrictions related to environmental issues created great encumberments to construction of a large commercial strip center in south Louisville. GEM Engineering conducted a geotechnical exploration, developed innovated approaches to foundation support and site preparation, and provided quality control and geotechnical engineering services during construction. Site stabilization utilized clay and sand fills from various sources, crushed concrete and shot-rock, as well as bridging techniques to achieve required stability without excavating below the limits established by the site safety plan.
