Waugh Chapel South Building 11, Crofton, MD

  • Three-story steel framed building is situated over controlled fills and native soils at a former sand and gravel mine.
  • GTA performed design-phase exploration for the building. GTA’s exploration included two in-situ dilatometer soundings. The results of the DMT soundings allowed us to significantly increase the allowable bearing pressure that was previously assigned, based on Standard Penetration Test (SPT) data, resulting in reduced footing sizes, and construction cost savings.
