Overview:
Geotechnology is providing geotechnical and construction materials testing services (CMT) for Beale Street Landing’s development during Phases III, IV and IV-B and anticipates continuing these services throughout the remaining phases.

Beale Street Landing was the first International Design Competition for a public/private capital project in the City of Memphis.

Details:
Geotechnical testing has included soil testing and Pile Dynamic Analysis (PDA) for H-piles and open-ended pipe piles. PDA included performing end-of-drive (EOD) and restrike tests on 12×53, 14×73 H-piles and open-ended, 24-inch diameter by 5/8-inch wall pipe piles to estimate the static axial capacity for each.

Materials testing has included concrete, aggregate and soils testing for the park/walking area, building and helical ramp which allows visitors to access the boat docks.
