19Nineteen Clarendon Boulevard

OVERVIEW
Langan was retained to oversee and supervise the removal of two unknown underground fuel oil storage tanks during site development. A characterization investigation followed and a total of 1,373.59-tons of petroleum-contaminated soils were excavated from the site and transported off-site for disposal. Langan is also conducting the monthly testing and monitoring of the on-site dewatering system that was installed after the site investigation.

Hecht Warehouse Redevelopment

OVERVIEW
Langan provided geotechnical engineering services to assist in the redevelopment of the historic Hecht warehouse into a mixed-use development. Known as one of the most significant art deco commercial buildings in the region, warehouse served as the company’s central warehouse from its construction in 1937 and expansion in 1948. Langan performed a series of geotechnical borings throughout the property to assess the subsurface conditions. The study also included a review of historic foundation drawings for the warehouse structure that was built in 1937 and its 1985 addition.

West Heating Plant

OVERVIEW
The proposed redevelopment of this World War II-era former coal heating plant into a Four Seasons Residences in Georgetown, is both historically and environmentally sensitive. This site was purchased from the General Services Administration as part of the government’s effort to minimize the federal footprint by selling unused property. Langan provided preliminary site/civil and geotechnical services and reviewed existing historic documentation for the property. We also conducted several environmental investigations, including mercury and PCB monitoring, lead paint abatement, and asbestos testing.

Rise at Flagler Village

OVERVIEW
Rise at Flagler Village is a luxury apartment rental development located in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The 238-unit development consists of a 30-story tower with an attached 8-story parking garage with roof-top pool and amenity deck, a fitness center, lounge and garden. The development also includes ground-floor retail space. Langan provided geotechnical engineering services including subsurface exploration, geotechnical engineering study and foundation design recommendations, consultations for dewatering, construction administration and oversight during installation and load testing of pile foundations.

Through a value engineering collaborative effort with the design-development team, Langan was able to provide geotechnical engineering recommendations for a small-diameter, high-capacity augercast pile foundation system for support of the tower and garage. Langan carefully design the pile foundation lengths to reduce cost, allow for faster installation, and reduce the differential settlement between the 30-story tower and the 8-story parking garage.

Grove at Grand Bay

OVERVIEW
The former Grand Bay Hotel site was replaced by two 21-story luxury residential towers and a three-level podium in Coconut Grove. The varying depth to the towers' bearing layers required that augercast pile foundations vary from intermediate to deeper depths. Langan worked closely with the project design team and the general contractor to understand loading requirements and site constraints caused by former precast pile foundations from the previous development, as well as potential impacts to neighboring properties from the project construction activities. Langan's coordinated geotechnical studies were performed prior to and during demolition of the former building, which resulted in timely foundation designs for the two towers and amenities podium.

OVERVIEW
Metropolitan Miami is a mixed-use development covering three downtown Miami city blocks on a site previously occupied by the historical Henry Flagler's Royal Palm Hotel. The development includes five towers housing offices, hotels, and residents, as well as a supermarket, several retail spaces, and a cinema. Langan performed subsurface investigations for all structures, as well as observed and monitored the installation of test piles and load tests for all structures. Additionally, Langan performed environmental studies in order to determine the extent of petroleum and creosote impacted soils due to a former marine bulkhead that traversed the property.

Avalon Brooklyn Bay

OVERVIEW
Langan provided multi-discipline engineering services for a 28-story residential tower (236 units), two-story parking garage with a recreational roof, and onsite parking located on approximately 2.3 acres. Numerous challenges arose during the project, including high building loads, strict settlement tolerances, and poor soil conditions. Langan’s geotechnical engineers performed a finite element analysis to model subsurface conditions and designed a hybrid foundation system that combined different pile types extending to various depths. Our transportation team conducted a comprehensive assessment of traffic and pedestrian circulation and safety issues, and our environmental team completed a diesel fuel spill closure report. Additionally, Langan's site/civil support included site evaluation, record search, utility and zoning reviews, and a flood plain consultation.

1535 Bedford Avenue

OVERVIEW
Langan is providing geotechnical and environmental services related to the construction of a 10-story, 28,156-SF residential building in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. Langan performed a remedial investigation that identified a petroleum plume extending to the regional groundwater table, about 130 feet below grade level. Remediation included the excavation of approximately 30,500 tons of soil/fill and the removal of 23 buried tanks, as well as the design and installation of a soil vapor extraction (SVE) system incorporated into the building foundation. Langan also prepared a noise remediation plan that is being implemented to satisfy the noise “E” requirements. Langan’s geotechnical engineers completed a subsurface investigation along with a report that provided foundation design recommendations.

Halstead Station

OVERVIEW
Halstead Station is transit-oriented residential development directly adjacent to the train station in downtown New Rochelle, New York. The project includes the renovation of a 25-story residential building, a new outdoor courtyard and amenity space, the design of a new roadway and streetscape design, and the reconfiguration of vehicular patterns. Langan's site/civil and traffic teams designed the streetscape to meet the needs of the City of New Rochelle as a pedestrian-friendly entrance to the city as one exits the train. Traffic calming methods, such as speed tables and enhanced crosswalks, were employed to slow down vehicles for a safer experience. Our landscape architecture + planning group worked closely with Newman Architects and DSF to design the outdoor courtyard spaces in order to better suit the TOD community and upgrade the existing layout.
