The Challenge

Providing foundation for a PEMB with a 2-hour, 20-tall CMU wall. This 10 acre industrial park located in northwest Houston had multiple challenges. There were no public utilities in the area and site drainage had to outfall into a shallow roadside ditch.

The Solution

Provide slab on grade with bell piers structure to support frame reactions for a PEMB. Aerobic tanks and spray fields were designed for wastewater and a well was provided for domestic water. A combination detention and fire pond was provided. A storm water pump station was designed for storm discharge to the roadside ditch while the remainder of the pond held the required volume of water for fire protection.
