CHW Radiation & Oncology Facility
Picture of CHW Radiation & Oncology Facility This historic building was originally a cannery built back in the 1930’s and has gone through several renovations as office space and is now being converted to a state of the art radiation and oncology facility. The central feature of the project is the Vault which is an extremely heavy concrete box structure having walls four to six feet thick and up to 18 feet tall. The existing soft soils underlying
the site required an innovative approach for foundation support. Drilled displacement columns were used to improve bearing capacity of the soils, control settlement and allow the use of a conventional mat slab for structural support. MPE is providing a full scope of geotechnical engineering and special inspections for the entire project. Picture of CHW Radiation & Oncology Facility
North 10th Street Renovation
Picture of North 10th Street Renovation This vintage, cast-in-place concrete warehouse building is receiving a full scale face-lift including new roof and truss system, and interior column and foundation support system renovations. MPE prepared the Geotechnical Engineering Report and foundation support recommendations for the project and is providing a full scope of construction materials testing including soils, concrete, and welding.
Construction of new conventional foundations exposed challenging structural backfill conditions due to loose and caving sands. MPE worked with the contractor and structural engineer to come up a cost effective and innovative solution to allow re-use of the on-site sands excavated from foundations as a Controlled Low Strength Material (CLSM) saving time and expense compared to typical compacted engineered backfill or Picture of North 10th Street Renovation
imported slurry materials. A specialty contractor was retained to mix the on-site sands with its proprietary equipment and MPE provided engineering support and trial mix design for the CLSM.
