Geotechnical Investigation and Materials Testing and Inspection for Construction of Solar Shade Structures (2014)
The project included the proposed development and construction of two sets of PV array structures.
In 2014, GAI performed a geotechnical investigation. Afterward, and during construction, GAI provided geotechnical materials testing and performed continuous and periodic inspections in compliance with the project-approved documents. Our scope of work included reviewing plans and project specifications, monitoring grading works, observing the bottom of excavations, observing and logging the caissons, inspecting rebar placement, performing periodic site visits for quality control purposes, observing and testing compaction during grading operations including removal and backfilling, documenting removal, backfills, and tested areas, performing required laboratory tests on retained samples from onsite and/or imported materials for fill placement, field concrete sampling, and laboratory compression testing on the collected samples.
