Andres Baquerizo, P.E., MSE and James Hurley
During this talk, James Hurley will speak on the Los Angeles County Museum project, located at the Le Brea Tar Pits. There were a number of difficulties in this area, one of which involved the tar-impregnated soils. Keller stepped in and provided solutions to various problems on the site and performed multiple techniques for this single project. You will hear about the challenges, the lessons learned, and more about our client relationships.
Next, Andres Baquerizo, P.E., MSE., will speak on the Aston Martin residences in Miami, Florida. In an ever-increasing land price due to relentless metropolitan developments and high-rise construction, in addition to building and dewatering regulation changes, developers must locate parking below grade. However, given a subsurface profile consisting of cohesionless soils and highly porous limestone, together with shallow ground-water tables or properties abutting the rivers or beaches, maintaining a safe and water-controlled excavation is key to guaranteed schedules and budgets. This presentation will review how to resolve such challenges and control risks, using several Keller techniques within lump sum contracts.
Keller North America provides a wide range of geotechnical engineering and construction services to improve soils in-place and to both construct new and rehabilitate foundations. The techniques that will be discussed include Compaction & Jet Grouting, Earth Retention and Shoring, Vibro Compaction & Replacement, Micropiles, Soil Mixing for Deep Basement Excavations, and Pile Driving. Within our range of services, a Ground Modification solution is generally available for the toughest subsurface conditions.
