Hammock Bay

Forge provided geotechnical services for each of the three towers located in Hammock Bay, as well as a fourth tower yet to be built. Deep foundations consisting of 18- and 24-inch diameter auger cast piles were the selected foundation options. Strain gage-monitored Statnamic and static load tests confirmed the 100 to 250 ton pile capacities. A rigorous program of removal/replacement allowed for first level slab on grades. CoMET services during the construction phase of the project were also provided.

Hyatt

Forge was contracted to provide geotechnical exploration and design services and static load testing of 18-inch diameter, 105-foot-long auger cast piles. The attached three-story parking garage foundations were designed as modified shallow footings utilizing multiple layers of geogrid to control settlements. CoMET services during the construction phase of the project were also provided.

Riverview Center

In this riverfront, 5-story multi building office complex, Forge provided geotechnical exploration and design services. To minimize settlement, a shallow foundation system that utilized a ground improvement program of vibro-replacement was the selected foundation option. CoMET services during construction were contracted for the entire complex.

Physicians Regional Medical Center (previously Cleveland Clinic)

Forge completed geotechnical engineering services during the design phase of the Cleveland Clinic Hospital complex. The initial phase of construction consisted of completing vibro-replacement soil improvement (stone columns). Forge monitored the installation of the stone columns and completed a static load test to evaluate the effectiveness of the soil improvement program. Additionally, Forge completed threshold inspection and CoMET services during construction to evaluate compliance with project plans and specifications. Subsequently, Forge designed and monitored the installation of auger-cast piles utilized for support of an addition to the hospital.

Esplanade Shoppes

At this high-end waterfront multi building retail/office/residential complex, Forge provided geotechnical exploration and design services. To minimize settlement, a shallow foundation system was utilized following a removal and replacement ground improvement program. This option provided over $400,000 savings to the project. CoMET, along with threshold inspection services, during construction were contracted for the entire complex.
