The Pacific Steel Branch Relocation project consisted of the relocation of the west end of the Pacific Steel & Recycling Centers’ Spokane branch. The development includes two new structures and the relocation of approximately 800 linear feet of a rail spur that services the facility. The structures include an approximate 9,000 square-foot office building and an approximate 20,200 square-foot combined baler/bale storage building. Additional development consists of a loading dock and two truck scales.
GEOTECHNICAL STRATA performed a geotechnical engineering evaluation to assess subsurface conditions by documenting exploratory test pits and providing opinions and recommendations to assist construction document development with regards to earthwork activities, shallow foundation design, concrete slab-on-grade floors, lateral earth pressures, rail spur recommendations, asphalt concrete, and Portland cement concrete pavement section thickness, and to assist in the design of stormwater, based on the conditions encountered and observed.
CONSTRUCTION SERVICES STRATA’s engineering staff performed geotechnical observations aligned with STRATA’s role as the Geotechnical-Engineer-of-Record. Our Construction Services Professionals perform on-site observation and field testing of earthwork operations, reinforced concrete placements, structural steel installation, and Portland cement concrete and asphaltic concrete placements. In addition, STRATA’s accredited laboratory provides soils, aggregate, concrete, and asphalt testing to complete our scope of services.
