This class will present a turn-key, design-build approach, to deliver a “dry bathtub”, i.e. a safe and water controlled excavation ready for the shell contractor to facilitate construction of 2-level underground parking garages. The various techniques used and their sequence will be discussed. The procedure comprises Deep Soil Mixing for the plug, reinforced Soil Mix Columns for excavation support, Augercast Piles for foundation support and anchoring of the plug, excavation, and disposal of soils, among others.
