Kenall provided geotechnical engineering and construction materials testing associated with the construction of multiple facilities at Galveston College. Projects included a 15,000 square foot addition, associated paving, and a new two-story, 10,000 square foot concrete building addition.
Our services included performing soil borings at selected locations on the subject sites to evaluate the subsurface stratigraphy and groundwater conditions, and performing pertinent laboratory tests per prescribed ASTM standards and local practice to evaluate the physical and engineering properties of subsurface soils. We also developed geotechnical design parameters for use in design of foundation supporting systems and prepared guidelines for earthwork (e.g. site preparation, grading and fill compaction) during construction.
