Event description
Join the Miami-Dade Geo-Institute on Thursday January 23, 2020 for a technical presentation by Garfield Wray and Developer panel Q&A

About this Event

Selecting the right foundation for a construction project is crucial to the successful performance of the structure as well as the overall success of the project. While foundation costs are generally a relatively small component of the overall project construction cost, foundation cost over-runs can still greatly impact the success of a project.

While it is generally desired to choose a shallow foundation system, it is not always practical or possible, and other more costly foundation systems sometimes become necessary.

This presentation looks at what a foundation is. The different types of foundations including shallow, deep, and hybrid foundations that include ground improvement. The presentation reviews developer/development project types and the factors affecting selection of a foundation system for a given project type.

It also evaluates the roles of the various stakeholders in the foundation system including the developer, geotechnical engineer, the bank, the contractor, and the building official. The presentation identifies the various factors to be considered by consultant and developer including subsurface conditions, foundation performance, cost, impact to schedule, and offsite impacts.

Finally, it concludes with three case studies that demonstrate how the factors described above impact and/or were impacted by the selection of the particular foundation system for the project.

Developers Nelson Stabile from Integra and Steven Arcamonte from Related will take part in a panel at the end of the presentation for an interesting Q & A.

The technical presentation will be by Garfield Wray, PE from NV5.
