Bayou La Batre, Alabama
Status: Completed 2013
GMC provided geotechnical recommendations during the design of a new WWTP and pump station. Geotechnical recommendations included site preparation, fill placement, soil improvement, and foundation design. Due to the upper 30 feet of very soft and loose coastal deposits, GMC provided soil improvement and foundation options including installing wick drains and surcharging the structural areas, soil mixing, aggregate columns, and driven piles. GMC recommended using a deep foundation piling system consisting or either augercast in place piles or precast concrete, timber, or steel piles.
