Project Spotlight: 1/27/17 Amazon decides to go "Prime" with the ground improvement!

The Amazon Fulfillment Center in Kansas City, KS is sited over deep existing fill and soft loess, in some cases 32 feet deep.  Tough situation for their large 855,000 square foot multi-story warehouse.

The design team turned to Geopier GP3® and X1® systems to support high-capacity footings loaded up to 600 kips with a bearing pressure of 6,000 psf.

The X1 system is a “drill and fill” technology that can improve poor soils up to 45 feet deep while producing the stiffness of the original Geopier system.



Let your local GIE Engineer know if you have a tough building site with deep poor soils; we’ll be glad to steer you clear of expensive pile systems, lengthy surcharges or other unimaginative solutions!
