Design-Build Solutions for Structures & Foundations
REI @ Pike and Rose
950 Rose Avenue is the address of a new 36,000 sf Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI) store. The store will feature a rustic yet modern design utilizing reclaimed wood and brick and contemporary vertical and etched metal paneling. Entrances will be framed by large wood and steel trellises.
The geotechnical engineer recommended the use of Geopier Rammed Aggregate Pier® elements to improve the fill soils so they could support footings designed for 6,000 psf for the main portion of the REI store.
For the interface with the 19-story tower, Ductile Iron Piles driven to decomposed rock were selected to support the loads from the south wall of the REI store adjacent to the tower. This approach eliminated the differential settlement concern at the interface between the two buildings.
GeoStructures exists to challenge conventional solutions and provide customers with innovative solutions to their foundation and grade separation challenges. The test against which success is measured is that any solution needs to provide customers with value in terms cost savings over conventional methods, shorter schedule and a seamless project delivery by a team focused on customer service.
Anyone can bid your plans…. Real Value occurs by improving the plan, and providing a design that is easy to build, lowers cost, improves the schedule, and accomplished with great customer service.
That’s why we exist…
