Kaiser Mission Bay Medical Offices

The site for the 9-story, 220,000 SF Kaiser Permanente medical office building in Mission Bay is in a liquefaction hazard zone so our geotechnical investigation was performed in accordance with the recommended methodology for evaluating liquefaction potential. We developed a significant indicator pile and load test program to evaluate constructability and capacity of the drilled displacement piles, a relatively new pile type in Mission Bay at the start of construction. Langan worked closely with the team to develop criteria for the installation of the foundations. Our environmental team developed a preliminary and final design documents for a methane mitigation system (MMS) for the building and provided construction administrations services.
