Anne Arundel County, MD
GTA provided subsurface explorations, including SPT borings, seismic Cone Penetration Test (CPT) soundings, and test pits for the 12-story mixed-use facility including 208 luxury apartments, 95,000 SF of ground floor retail space, and a 1,000-car parking structure at the Annapolis Town Centre (formerly the Parole Shopping Center site). The seismic CPT soundings allowed GTA to improve the seismic site class for the site resulting in a cost-effective structural design. GTA also provided construction phase observation and testing services including review of foundation subgrade, backfill, post-tensioned concrete and structural steel. GTA’s involvement and prompt response allowed quick resolution of several issues encountered during construction.
