Scope:

PSE provided structural engineer services as consultant for the acquisition and for the renovation of 2 steel office buildings construed over a landfill.

Improvements Include:

- Repair of all site amenities built over the landfill.

- Repair of all means of egress as cantilevered structures to prevent movement relative to the building.

- New canopies and entrance focal points.

- New façade system for building 7000.0

 

Challenges:

 

- The site surrounding the property is sinking, however the building is on pile and does not move.  All new construction must remain level with the building access points.

- The use of piles, or any ground improvement is not possible as there is a methane barrier 5 ft below grade.

Solutions:

- Cantilevered concrete structures tied back to the building’s pile caps, using the buildings as a counterweight.

- A hinge system that will bear on the building and allow the site structures to settle without cracking.

- Use of structural Styrofoam ( Geofoam) in larger areas.
