Health Center South broke ground on their new $25 million office building in May 2017. The new 5-story, 187,500 square-foot building is a mixed-use medical office tower. The first level will be used for automobile parking with complimentary electric vehicle charging stations. The upper 4 levels will contain retail and high-tech, medical class-A leasable space. Constructed next to a tributary of Beaver Creek, the site sits on deep, very loose soil deposits. Due to the tower’s heavy structural loads and the underlying loose soils, CDG was tasked with developing a cost-effective, low-impact foundation system that would minimize disruption to on-going operations at Eye Center South. Augered, cast-in-place piles were selected due to their rapid installation schedule, high capacity and minimal impact on adjacent facilities. In addition to serving as the Geotechnical Engineer of Record, CDG provided engineering inspection and materials testing services during construction to verify compliance with the project’s design requirements.
