Project Location: Las Vegas, NV
Overview: LTC performed bi-directional load testing on two preliminary test shafts in downtown Las Vegas. Both shafts were 131 feet deep; one drilled with a nominal 48” diameter and the second with a nominal 72” diameter. The site was being actively excavated during test shaft installation and load testing, which made the bi-directional test with its small footprint an ideal solution. The test program gave the design engineer all the necessary information to finalize design and proceed with the production shafts. Geotechnical & Environmental Services, Inc. was the Geotechnical Engineer.
