Project Description

Faced with an array of structural, MEP, and geotechnical challenges, our client required professional engineers to perform comprehensive TR1 and TR8 Special Inspections at the construction site. With GRANT overseeing construction administration and management, our structural engineers optimized the project budget by underpinning adjacent structures with helical piles and implementing soldier piles with timber lagging along the sidewalk. To ensure the highest of safety standards, crack-monitoring and vibration assessments were performed in addition to over 20 additional Special Inspections throughout construction. GRANT’s building engineers strategized and designed the usage allocation per unit to serve a diverse line-up of users from restaurants to medical offices. GRANTs work resulted in an efficient and affordable design for the contractors and tenants.
