Grove at Grand Bay
The former Grand Bay Hotel site was replaced by two 21-story luxury residential towers and a three-level podium in Coconut Grove. The varying depth to the towers' bearing layers required that augercast pile foundations vary from intermediate to deeper depths. Langan worked closely with the project design team and the general contractor to understand loading requirements and site constraints caused by former precast pile foundations from the previous development, as well as potential impacts to neighboring properties from the project construction activities. Langan's coordinated geotechnical studies were performed prior to and during demolition of the former building, which resulted in timely foundation designs for the two towers and amenities podium.
