Kenall > Projects > Engineering Investigation of 9200 Block Barracks Buildings

Kenall provided subsurface field investigation, laboratory testing and geotechnical engineering services associated with a barracks renovation at Fort Hood. The project called for the renovation of 9200 Block Barracks Buildings 9210, 9211, 9213 and 9214. These four buildings shared an identical floor plan template.

To perform our scope, we drilled soil borings through the ground level floor slabs-on-grade within the interior of the Barracks Buildings and recovered samples of subsurface materials for laboratory testing, and data analysis. We also: reviewed design and construction documents including plans and construction specifications; conducted site visits and documented current conditions; conducted a geophysical field investigation that utilized ground penetrating radar (GPR) and a high-frequency electromagnetic survey (EM); performed laboratory soils testing including dynamic cone penetrometer tests; and prepared geotechnical engineering analyses including analysis of test results, site geological evaluation, and geotechnical report/studies.
