Geopier goes in San Jose, Costa Rica

Another great project for Geopier is taking place in San Jose, Costa Rica!

 The Geopier X1® system is being installed to support a 5-story + basement level building in San Jose, Costa Rica. The building corresponds to the east tower of the Calderón Guardia hospital. Soil conditions consist of stiff silts and loads of up to 600 kips. Total settlements are being controlled to less than 2 inches. Value engineering allowed the design team to change a mat foundation solution for a footings solution taking advantage of the improved bearing capacity provided by the Geopier Rammed Aggregate Pier® (RAP) system.

You can find all the information about Geopier X1 here.
