Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs

UES provided 3D Subsurface Information Modeling (SIM) and Utility Engineering (SUE) to assist the design team with potential underground clashes on the new Goldman Sachs complex in Dallas, TX. The 800,000 square foot building will provide state-of-the-art amenities and house 500+ employees. Located at North Field Street, the building will be composed of two wings, with the tallest being 14 floors and sit alongside a 1.5-acre urban park.

The SIM process followed general accordance with ASCE 38-22 and utilized several geophysical techniques including GPR, RF, TDEM, and FDEM.

  • Oversight of Geotechnical recommendations
  • Structural fill, grading, soils and pad certification
  • Reinforced concrete on grade and elevated
  • Drilled pier foundations
  • Structural masonry
  • Structural steel
  • Exterior insulation finishing system
  • Fire-resistive penetrations and joints
  • Floor flatness and floor levelness
  • Epoxy and mechanical anchors
  • Spray-applied fireproofing and intumescent paint fireproofing
  • Final reports for governing jurisdictions

Ballpark Village

Ballpark Village

The 3.5-acre Ballpark Village site is located adjacent to PETCO Park and represents the largest contiguous and undeveloped land remaining in downtown San Diego. JMI Realty and Greystar constructed a 37-story apartment tower and surrounding low-rise buildings upon a three-level (1,214-space) underground parking garage. The project also includes 55,000 SF of ground-floor retail space, and a pedestrian and vehicle thoroughfare.

The $250 million dollar project was constructed between April 2015 and
August 2018. The multifamily assets offer views of the Pacific Ocean,
San Diego Bay, Coronado Island, the Coronado Bridge, Balboa Park,
Point Loma, and the downtown skyline. Ballpark Village is part of a
master-planned development in the Ballpark District and a six-building,
mixed-use project.

UES provided all geotechnical engineering and consulting services and
all laboratory materials testing services during construction. Our services
include, but were not limited to, geotechnical engineering, geotechnical
consulting, soils observation and testing, installation and testing of
hydrostatic hold-down anchors, inspection and materials testing of
concrete, mortar, grout, masonry, high-strength bolts, structural steel,
waterproofing, fireproofing, and roofing testing. CTE engineered and
constructed a large diameter drilled pier or caisson for alternative support of the southwest corner of the tower building to eliminate an additional un-constructible detached oversized below-grade mat foundation.

Symphony Park – Aspen Heights Projects

Symphony Park – Aspen Heights Projects

Symphony Park is located on the historic Union Pacific Railroad Yard (UPRR). For approximately 90 years, the UPRR operated its maintenance and fueling at this location, causing contamination of the soil and groundwater to the UPRR site and downtown Las Vegas from a variety of contaminants. This Phase I ESA included an extensive file review of records through the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) and of the Soil and Groundwater Management documents created for the Symphony Park location. 

The Aspen Heights project area was determined to be historically located in the area of the former maintenance yard with a fuel pipeline shown in maps to travel through the project area, along the tracks. The current usage of the site was a parking lot for the Smith Center for the Performing Arts. A Recognized Environmental Condition (REC) was determined in the Phase I ESA for the known historic contamination of the site.

At the request of GDC Properties (owner), UES prepared a Georgia Hazardous Site Response Program (GA HSRA) and released a notification for the above-referenced facility. The release notification was required based on the presence of tetrachloroethene (PCE) within groundwater samples collected at the site above background levels.

The property consists of approximately 9.01 acres and is located at 3550 Centerville Rosebud Highway in Snellville, Georgia. UES performed a water well survey for the surrounding properties. UES also successfully achieved Georgia Non-Hazardous Site Inventory status for this release at this facility.
