Avalon Brooklyn Bay

Langan provided multi-discipline engineering services for a 28-story residential tower (236 units), two-story parking garage with a recreational roof, and onsite parking located on approximately 2.3 acres. Numerous challenges arose during the project, including high building loads, strict settlement tolerances, and poor soil conditions. Langan’s geotechnical engineers performed a finite element analysis to model subsurface conditions and designed a hybrid foundation system that combined different pile types extending to various depths. Our transportation team conducted a comprehensive assessment of traffic and pedestrian circulation and safety issues, and our environmental team completed a diesel fuel spill closure report. Additionally, Langan's site/civil support included site evaluation, record search, utility and zoning reviews, and a flood plain consultation.
