Texas Tower

The Texas Tower in downtown Houston is a 47-story office tower with a 12-story podium and two below-grade levels. Langan performed a two-phase subsurface investigation; provided geotechnical design and construction recommendations for the tower mat, podium footings, and temporary and permanent retention drilled shafts and tieback anchors; and performed finite element modelling to calculate settlements and equivalent springs used in the structural analysis of the tower. Langan also provided quality assurance observation and verification during retention system and foundation construction.
