Southside Support of Excavation and Excavation
The project’s foundation contractor has completed the lagging at the east and west soldier beams located at the corners of the site. The tie-backs have been installed, fully grouted & tested. The contractor will proceed with excavating soil in south section down to new subgrabe level.
The existing retaining wall at the south property line will need to be underpinned in order to complete excavation. The contractor will begin digging out, forming and placing the underpinning for these sections. Once underpinning is complete excavation will proceed and be completed in those areas. During this time, soil will be trucked off site. The contractor will have flagging operations in place for all trucks coming in and out of the site in order to minimize any impact on pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
