Cunningham-Limp Development Company


G2 Consulting Group performed a geotechnical investigation, phase 1 environmental site assessment, and provided special inspections/materials testing.

Prior to construction, G2 explored the site to determine and evaluate general subsurface conditions and developed related foundation recommendations for support of the proposed structure, as well as, pavement recommendations, and construction considerations related to the development. Our special inspections / materials testing scope of our services included evaluating earthwork operations; utility installation; observing retaining wall installation; performing foundation inspection and concrete inspection for foundations, flatwork, and site concrete; performing structural steel evaluation, masonry inspection, and bituminous paving.

Geotechnical Investigation / Special Inspections and Materials Testing

Challenges / Solutions

The project was challenged with poor subsurface conditions that required the removal and replacement of soft/loose uncontrolled fill soils with engineered fill to support the foundations and floor slab. In addition, a variety of subgrade stabilization techniques were used to minimize removal of non-organic fill soils for support of pavements.

How did we accomplish “Smart. Results. Fast”?

With any design/build project, turnaround time on project deliverables is critical to meeting construction milestones.  G2 performed this significant geotechnical investigation in a short period of time and provided preliminary design recommendations shortly after completion of field report to allow the design / build team to move forward with their design.
