New Jersey Transit – Hoboken Bus Terminal

Langan provided geotechnical engineering services for the proposed construction of a high-rise building over the existing New Jersey Transit (NJT) Bus Terminal in Hoboken, New Jersey. Based on available information, we evaluated the subsurface conditions and provided preliminary foundation recommendations for the support of the building. The preliminary foundation design for the support of the proposed structure presented many technical challenges that required unique engineering design capabilities. The challenges include the design of a truss system and high capacity foundation elements to provide a clear span over the PATH Station beneath the site.
