GES is providing Geotechnical Engineering and Construction Materials Testing (CMT) services for this Fort Worth, Texas area warehouse facility. Phase 1, completed in early 2021, included two tilt wall buildings totaling 1,037,000 SF. Phase 2, currently underway, includes one 670,000 SF building and associated parking and drive areas.

GES’ geotechnical field investigation included 375 LF of soil borings which included rock coring. GES’ geotechnical report provided engineering recommendations for preparation of the building pad, drilled pier foundations, pavement subgrade stabilization and parking area concrete. Followup analysis was performed and recommendations were provided for private roadway pavement sections and for slope stability for the site stormwater detention features.

GES’ CMT inspection scope for the building included monitoring the placement of over 660,000 CY of moisture conditioned onsite soils to construct the building pad. The inspection scope also included testing and inspection of drilled piers, reinforcing steel, slab on grade and tilt wall panel concrete, floor flatness / floor levelness measurement, and structural steel inspections including ultrasonic testing of welds. The CMT inspection scope for the paving included monitoring of 1,627,000 square feet of heavy duty on-site paving.
