Advancements in Deep Foundations: Augered Cast-In-Place Piles
Located in downtown Fargo, North Dakota, the Block 9 Redevelopment project site contains highly-compressible soils in the upper 100 feet with groundwater about 10 to 15 feet below the existing ground surface. The owner prohibited using driven piles to avoid disturbing neighbors of the project and historically, drilled shafts are used in Fargo as a reduced noise and vibration alternative to driven piles. However, developments over the last 20 to 30 years in drilling equipment, load testing and integrity testing resulted in the project team identifying augered cast-in-place piles as a suitable alternative for this project. To reduce the risks...

Large scale land usage requires an understanding of the impacts to the local habitat as well as the baseline environmental conditions of the site to help avoid future claims. Solar arrays require an understanding of site soils to design a racking system that can withstand the lateral and vertical forces induced.

Mid Permit-Cycle Changes for Stormwater Discharge Monitoring Reporting? Not Quite Yet.

Slow Transition to Web-Based Reporting However, since the current permit cycle began in 2016, the TCEQ has been issuing annual “electronic reporting waivers” that allow permittees to submit the annual DMR via the old, faithful pen...
