Design-Build Solutions for Structures & Foundations
Rowan University Rohrer College of Business
The new four-story, 96,500-square-foot will include: common areas to encourage collaboration among students and South Jersey business leaders; a “hatchery,” where students can develop their own entrepreneurial ventures; and the Center for Business Professionalism, where students will sharpen their job search skills and employers can conduct interviews with job-seekers.
Ultimately, Pennoni recommended Rammed Aggregate Pier (RAP) elements to improve the loose underlying sand layers instead of deep foundation systems such as 35 feet deep timber piles. The RAP system was selected over the deep foundation option based on schedule and vibration concerns.
GeoStructures exists to challenge conventional solutions and provide customers with innovative solutions to their foundation and grade separation challenges. The test against which success is measured is that any solution needs to provide customers with value in terms cost savings over conventional methods, shorter schedule and a seamless project delivery by a team focused on customer service.
Anyone can bid your plans…. Real Value occurs by improving the plan, and providing a design that is easy to build, lowers cost, improves the schedule, and accomplished with great customer service.
That’s why we exist…
Established in 1995, GeoStructures consists of geotechnical and structural engineers that provide marketing and design services in support of its sister company GeoConstructors (established in 1997). GeoConstructors provides design-build construction services for ground improvement, (Aggregate Piers, Geopier, Impact Pier Displacement Piers, GeoConcrete Columns, Rigid Inclusions, Ductile Iron Piles & Rapid Impact Compaction), structures-walls (Soundwalls, Retaining Walls, MSE Walls, Post and Panel Walls, Concrete Arches and Bridges) and slope stability applications (SRT Plate Piles, Drilled Shafts, Geogrid Slope Reinforcement, and Landslide Stabilization). These technologies are used to solve customer problems ranging from settlement control of building, tank and MSE wall foundations, liquefaction mitigation, and support of load transfer platforms, to landslide corrections for shallow and deep seated slope failures, and creating economical grade separation options with steepened slopes.
By providing design-build services under one roof, clients have been receiving the seamless experience of customized design-build services for their Brownfield, Commercial, Industrial, Residential, and Transportation projects for the last 20 years.
