Industrial Projects

The manufacturing/industrial sector present unique geotechnical engineering challenges. Most facilities require large open spaces, resulting in heavy column loads. Vibration and settlement sensitive equipment requirements often needs to be address as part of the design scope. Many facilities in the northeast are old and little to no information is available on the existing structure, foundation systems utilized, and subsurface conditions expected under the structure.

Foundation Design, P.C. has consulted on numerous new manufacturing facilities, upgrades inside existing manufacturing plants, and expansions to existing space, providing geotechnical engineering consultation services across New York State. Foundation systems utilizing spread footing, mat foundation, and deep foundation design solutions have been utilized. Manufacturing/industrial sector project have included work at the following facilities:
