Recent Webinar on Injectable Barriers™ is Popular Learning Opportunity
The recent webinar Ground Works hosted on Injectable Barrier Walls, titled Trenchless Applications for Restricting Groundwater and Contamination movement, provided an excellent learning opportunity for engineers, environmental consultants or for those seeking to learn more about innovative applications for subsurface barrier walls, curtain walls or for stabilizing soils for trenching.
Robert W. Moody, Jr., Ground Works’ President, presented along with Tim Harmon, P.E. with Handex/HCR. They presented three case studies presenting environmental containment and control and seepage management for dams, dikes, levees, and water control structures. Some of these presentations included the FDOT SR7 Injectable Barrier Wall, FPL Headwall Installation and the Handex Consulting and Remediation FDOT Riviera Beach subsurface contamination groundwater restriction project.
The webinar lasted for about approximately 50 minutes, however the subject matter of the webinar must have highly intrigued the audience. Mr. Moody and Mr. Harman went on to…
Ground Works Featured in Trenchless Technology Article
In the July 2016 issue of Trenchless Technology, Ground Works Solutions’ CFO, Aaron Hall, writes about the successful rehabilitation of a box culvert in Pensacola, Florida. In the piece, Aaron discusses the problems created by historic flooding in Escambia County and how Ground Works Solutions was able to lift a box culvert structure by two feet in order to restore its long-term viability.
You can read about the scope of the project and the challenges in the article here.
Rehabilitating Soils to Increase the Bearing Capacity Under Milk Storage and Grain Handling Facilities
Silos are storage systems designed to contain massive amounts of weight within a concentrated area and vary in size, ranging from 20-80 feet tall with diameters of 12-30 feet. Some storage facilities have more than one or two silos sitting in a small area. When the silos are full, the significant weight can impact settlement of the foundation and/or the foundations of nearby structures.
In addition to the consolidated weight of tanks that hold liquid and grain storage bins, the surrounding processing facilities get a lot of traffic as well. There is a constant stream of trucks, mostly loaded with heavy cargo, coming and going from the facility. When there is a rail spur next to the facility, the soils underneath and around the grain bins, silos, and mission critical buildings are taxed with even more weight. Consequently, there is a lot of weight consolidated into a relatively small area around these crucial, very busy facilities.
After heavy rainfall like…
Soil Stabilization under 100-Year-Old FDNY Firehouse
Fire stations are critical in serving the diverse needs of the community where they are located, as well as the fire department they report to. The New York City Fire Department (FDNY) protects more than 8,000,000 New York City residents living and working in a 320 square mile radius. The FDNY is the largest fire department in the United States.
The FDNY serves the five boroughs of New York City and includes 255 fire stations. Each fire station’s differences relate to the size of the firefighting apparatus housed within it and the facility’s location, which is largely driven by the need to minimize response time. The FDNY Engine Companies are tasked with securing a water supply and extinguishing the fire while the FDNY Ladder Companies conduct search and rescue, forcible entry, and ventilation at the scene of a fire.
Zero Excavation Inflow & Infiltration Restoration At the Naval Air Station in Pensacola after a High Water Event
Ever since the U.S. purchased Florida from Spain in 1821, the site where the Naval Air Station (NAS) in Pensacola currently stands has provided a base for military operations. In 1826, construction began on the Pensacola Navy Yard and it eventually became one of the “best-equipped naval stations” in the U.S. During this period, the Navy Yard was used for docking and repairing the warships of that period. When the Navy saw the advantages of aviation in combat, Pensacola became an aviation training station in 1914 and the station was built on the side of the old Navy Yard. In 2014, NAS Whiting Field celebrated 71 years in operation and is considered to be the “backbone of the Navy’s flight program” and is still one of the most important Navy bases in the U.S.
