Project Description:

GEM contributed to the design and construction of five (5) major additions to the North American Stainless industrial facility in Ghent, Kentucky. The site includes approximately 1,100 acres along the bank of the Ohio River. GEM worked on the Melt Shop, Finishing Building, Hot Milling Shop, Cooling Bed Shop and Z Mill facilities during our period of involvement. GEM’s services have included several geotechnical explorations for various portions of the site including numerous deep borings to define the subsurface conditions for pile design; development of design and construction recommendations for auger pressure grouted (APG) piles subject to significant compression, uplift and lateral loads; pile load testing; and monitoring of APG pile installation.
