Salem Fire/EMS – Station 151

Station 151 is a 20,000 SF, five-bay, single-story fire and emergency medical services facility. Due to the site’s location on highly liquefiable soil deposits, compacted stone columns (CSC) were selected for mitigation. Langan’s geotechnical team provided a subsurface investigation to evaluate the site’s liquefaction potential and its impact on the construction. We also developed a geotechnical design of the CSC system to mitigate liquefaction-induced settlement and lateral spreading, monitored the CSC installation, and reviewed the affected area to make sure the system met project requirements.
