T-43 Warehouse is a new 207,000 sq-ft facility located next to the Teterboro Airport in Teterboro, NJ. Although the site contained a previously demolished warehouse, the perimeter of the new facility is larger than that of the previous structure.
Menard was chosen to perform ground improvement to support the new facility in the areas outside the footprint of the previously demolished warehouse.
Wick Drains were proposed to consolidate and strengthen the soils of the new building footprint. However, the owner was concerned about potentially contaminated ground water in an approximately 33,000 sq-ft area. Controlled Modulus Column (CMC)® rigid inclusions were then incorporated into the design in this area of concern to prevent the possibly contaminated ground water from reaching the surface.
