Lister Avenue Warehouse

Project Details:

Owner: The Morris Companies
General Contractor: Power Concrete
Duration of Work: 11 weeks
Subsurface Conditions: Highly contaminated, dense fill over soft organic silt underlain by a clayey sand layer
Approximate Key Quantities: 4,700 Controlled Modulus Column (CMC)® rigid inclusions

Project Overview:

The Lister Avenue Warehouse is a 352,000 sq-ft facility in the Ironbound section of Newark, NJ. To strengthen the highly contaminated soft subsurface soils, support the high surface loads, minimize future settlements, and avoid ground water treatment structures, Menard implemented a design-build ground improvement solution using Controlled Modulus Column (CMC)® rigid inclusions.

Ground Conditions:

The building site had very poor soil conditions. The upper layers of soil consisted of 5 to 10 ft of highly contaminated, dense fill over 8 to 25 ft of very soft organic silt and peat underlain by a clayey sand layer 20 to 30ft below grade. The medium dense sands at depth were considerably softer than anticipated. Due to the loosesands, the CMC rigid inclusions extended to depths ranging from 35 to 60 ft.
