JFK International Airport – Building 260/261

Langan led the geotechnical investigation for a 300,000-SF facility along North Boundary Road, one of JFK Airport’s first major airside cargo facilities in over 20 years.

We completed the geotechnical investigation in two phases. Phase I included 22 mud-rotary borings installed up to 100 ft. deep along a 90-inch combined sewer that transected the site. We summarized Phase I results in a geotechnical report, including deep foundation alternatives to support a structural slab spanning the combined sewer. Phase II included an additional 42 borings and 10 seismic cone penetration tests to evaluate subsurface conditions across the site. Our geotechnical engineers also provided design recommendations for deep foundation alternatives, demolition considerations and impacts related to historic deep foundations, site excavation plans and potential re-use of on-site concrete and soils, and utility recommendations. Additionally, we prepared a tenant alteration application (TAA), provided design drawings and specifications, drafted the Environmental Management Plan, and completed TAA forms.
