Urban Foundations and Earth Support Systems

A.A. Will entered the urban deep foundation market in the early 1980's. Early projects included 265 Franklin Street and One International Place. These deep excavations involved drilled soldier pile and lagging earth support systems braced with tiebacks. Sheeted excavations for cast in place foundations, internal pipe bracing, and pin piles were also used on similar projects. Slurry walls also became a commonly used method of constructing permanent deep foundations. The Mass General Hospital project was a 100' deep excavation within a slurry wall and contained 180,000 cubic yards of soils. We provide cost effective solutions for complex site issues encountered such as contaminated soils, major utility crossings, timber piles, and other remnant foundations.
