Recommended foundations types (shallow/deep foundations)
Basement wall and other design parameters
Seismic site classification
Frost design considerations
Recommendations for Gravel and Asphalt parking
Recommendations for garbage access route
Groundwater and sloughing level at completion of field drilling.
Identification of utility crossings and any other pertinent information.
Laboratory testing includes the following:
Moisture Content ASTM D2216
Sulphate Analysis ASTM C1580
Atterberg Limits ASTM 4318
Acheived scope requirements
Project was completed ahead of schedule
