Project Description

The client acquired a 15,000 sq. ft. development site for senior housing in the Woodlawn section of the Bronx. GRANT was retained by the client to perform a geotechnical investigation which consisted of six test borings, a temporary monitoring well, soil sample collection, a percolation test and rock coring. Grant then prepared the geotechnical analysis and recommendations report and signed off the Technical Report 4 (TR-4) form for construction permitting purposes. GRANT was also retained to perform support of excavation (SOE) design, which was prepared for Department of Buildings (DOB) submission.
