Flashback Friday: Jacqueline A. Cryan Memorial Park, Sealy, Texas – GES is proud to have provided Geotechnical Engineering and Construction Materials Testing services for this 8-acre municipal park and roadway construction project. The project included a pool house, skate park, a 2,200 LF multi-use trail, a 22,000 SF parking area and 1,600 LF of public roadway. This park was earmarked for development in 2010 to encourage the health of area residents and to expand state and local outdoor recreation resources and offers additional amenities such as: picnic tables with grill, native grass, tree plantings, and interpretive signs.
GES performed the geotechnical field investigation, including all drilling and logging. GES’ Geotechnical Engineering report provided recommendations for construction excavations, building pad and paving earthwork, drilled piers, shallow spread footings, and slab on grade and pavement concrete construction.
GES’ testing and inspection scope during construction included foundation, pavement and utility earthwork, drilled piers, cast in place concrete, shotcrete, conventional concrete reinforcing, and masonry inspections.
The park was an LWCF-assisted (Land and Water Conservation Fund) park.
