Project Spotlight: 6/29/16 Freshwater Plaza Mixed Use is underway in Milwaukee WI

Catalyst Construction is building a new 4-story mixed-use building in Milwaukee.  According to R.A. Smith National, the project structural engineer, the building will have column loads up to 450 kips and wall loads of 9 kips per lineal foot.

WKG2 performed the geotechnical exploration and found fill over organic silt and peat along with shallow groundwater.  Right up the Geopier®alley!

Steve Weyda, P.E. with Ground Improvement Engineering developed a solution that included both Geopier Armorpact® and Geopier Grouted Impact®  for foundation support.  The designers were able to use standard spread footings and a floor slab-on-grade instead of more costly methods.

The following is a link to a recent Daily Reporter article showing the Geopier construction by Foundation Service Corporation, the licensed installer for Wisconsin.

    The fresh water can be the one which can be digging out from the surface at the same time. All the water resources cannot be considered fresh. Because the water may be stored over there for the longer water. And the moving water is always considered as the fresh one.
