Havenwood Office Park
GES provided Geotechnical Engineering (GEO) and Construction Materials Testing (CMT) services for this office development with a four‐story, 244,000‐SF office building with a 215,000‐SF parking garage. The building design consisted of a tilt wall concrete shell with 62‐foot tall panels supported by a spread and strip footing foundation. The project included an additional 100,000‐SF of parking and drive areas. This Havenwood Office Park is located in Spring, Texas.
GES performed the geotechnical investigation which included 16 soil borings, totaling 365 feet, to delineate subsurface conditions at the site. All soil boring, sample logging and laboratory testing was performed by GES personnel. GES’ Geotechnical Engineering report provided recommendations for construction excavations, building pad earthwork, shallow foundations, retaining structures, slab on grade, and rigid and flexible pavements.
GES’ testing and inspection scope during construction included foundation, pavement and utility earthwork, cast in place concrete, conventional concrete reinforcing and structural steel inspections.
