Geotechnical Engineering Report!

Before submitting to DOB, we needed to determine the structural engineering characteristics of the soil at the site. The investigation revealed that the area “ as dense soil and rubble fill, underlain by a very dense silty sand with traces of gravel rock fragments and cobble…The site was determined to support a foundation loads of 4 tons per square foot”

That’s good news!
