Park East Tower: Construction Observation

Location: Park East Tower, Construction Observation, St. Louis, Missouri
Services: geotechnical, environmental and
materials testing

Construction Observation Overview:

We conducted environmental due diligence, geotechnical services and construction materials testing services for the development of a 26-story, luxury high-rise condominium in the Central West End area of St. Louis.

Park East Tower Details:

The $50 million Park East Tower development included 89 condominiums and 8,000 square feet of retail space. We provided environmental services including Phase I environmental site assessments, underground storage tank closure and management, and MDNR-Voluntary Cleanup Program management. Geotechnical investigations were conducted at the site prior to construction. We also provided construction observation, foundation observation and materials testing services during the construction phase of the project.

We assisted with additional design challenges presented by karst-related water-filled solution cavities in the underlying rock. During pier drilling activities, water infiltration prohibited manned pier inspections. We subsequently conducted rock coring at each pier location to assess rock quality and provide end-bearing values for the drilled piers.
