Due to the heavy loads and the compressible nature of the underlying soils, NTH recommended that the project utilize a Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) deep foundation system to support the precast concrete parking deck. Shallow strip / spread footings and wood frame construction were utilized for the residential structures. The development also included the installation of below grade utilities as well as the construction of pavements and driveways.
In addition to providing engineering evaluation and consultation to the design team, Singh retained NTH during the construction process to provide construction observation and materials testing services for the foundation systems, parking deck erection, concrete slabs, pavements, and more. The Griffin Apartments development is on schedule to be completed in 2020. When complete, the Griffin will be an avant-garde complex featuring 245 apartment homes above 10,000 square feet of commercial retail space.
