Dennis Boehm and Dale Evans, PE
Coastal programs have taken on a new focus with shifting populations, increased offshore trade, and the need for new and expanded infrastructure. Such needs have thus created an expanded emphasis on coastal protection, new facilities development, and the resiliency to preserve both green and gray infrastructure. Keller company entities have employed and developed application-specific technologies to that can readily be applied to a host of specialized geo-structural and environmental needs. This presentation will provide a background for understanding the ground improvement and structural support options available for coastal and riverine systems, the capacity to adapt the suite of technologies available to coastal resiliency programs, and a few case histories to showcase previous applications. As an additional focus of the presentation, we will offer design-build solutions we have deployed to increase the efficiency of the design of heavily loaded bulkheaded structures and MOFs, much of which deploy the same technology provided in the pursuit of coastal resiliency.
Keller North America provides a wide range of geotechnical engineering and construction services to improve soils in place and to both construct new and rehabilitate foundations. The techniques that will be discussed include Compaction & Jet Grouting, Earth Retention and Shoring, Vibro Compaction & Replacement, Micropiles, Soil Mixing for Deep Basement Excavations, and Pile Driving. Within our range of services, a Ground Modification solution is generally available for the toughest subsurface conditions.
