Goya Foods Headquarters

OVERVIEW
The new headquarters consists of an approximately 615,000-SF warehouse on a 40-acre site. Langan provided site/civil, geotechnical, surveying, traffic engineering, landscape architecture, and natural resources permitting services. Our multi-disciplined approach greatly simplified a complex development process, thereby bringing great value to Goya. Additionally, Langan recommended a concrete modulus column subgrade improvement program, which was designed to support a high slab loading with a minimal settlement tolerance. This solution saved approximately $8 million as compared to a standard deep pile foundation.
