Structural Engineering

GEEC has a trained staff of Professional Structural Engineers who can provide turn key solutions for our clients.  Below are a few  projects completed by our Structural Division:
 

Heavy Structural Projects

Heavy Machinery Foundations–Structural design of reinforced concrete foundations, basement level columns and walls with pilasters, main level beam and floor system, and other work necessary to extend basement area and construct the new main level support system required to extend the Number One Paper Machine approximately 150 ft. within an existing building.  Design included the underpinning system required to support the main level during excavation for the basement extension.  All excavation and structural work was completed without shut-down of the paper machine; International Paper Company, Camden Mill, Camdem, Arkansas.

Heavy Machinery Foundations–Structural design of foundation for chip mill for chipping trees to 24 inch in diameter, elevated approximately 15 ft. above grade; International Paper Company, Camden Mill; Camden, Arkansas.

Reinforced Concrete Basins–Structural design of reinforced concrete wastewater treatment facilities including a below grade 150,000 gallon aeration basin, Cloverdale subdivision, Alexandria, LA.

Reinforced Concrete Basins–Structural design of reinforced concrete wastewater treatment facilities including below grade lift station wet wells, below grade 1.5 million gallon aeration basin and grade level foundation for 100 horsepower blowers,; U.S. Corps of Engineers, North Fort Wastewater Treatment Plant, Fort Polk, Leesville, LA.

Reinforced Concrete Bridges–Structural design of two-span pre-cast concrete bridge; City of Covington, Covington, LA.

Reinforced Concrete Structures–Structural design of two reinforced concrete water control structures (25 ft. in height) for Flood Control Dams; U.S. Corps of Engineers, Yazoo Basin Demonstration Flood Control Project, Mississippi.

Reinforced Concrete Structures, Mississippi River –Structural design of two reinforced concrete, pile supported structures for the South Wastewater Outfall to Mississippi River.  The structures were designed to dissipate energy of 1.5 MGD flow thru a 54 inch outfall pipeline with velocities to 15 fps.  The structures were constructed to depths of 35 ft. below grade and 15 ft. below the mean low water level of the Mississippi River; City/Parish East Baton Rouge, South Wastewater Treatment Facility, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Reinforced Concrete Structures, Mississippi River–Structural design of two reinforced concrete, pile supported structures and two pile supported reinforced concrete pipe support systems for North Wastewater Outfall to Mississippi River.  The structures were designed to dissipate energy of 1.1 MGD flow thru twin 48 inch outfall pipelines with velocities to 15 fps.  The structures were constructed to depths of 25 ft. below grade and 5 ft. below the mean low water level of the Mississippi River.  The dual pipe support systems consisted of reinforced concrete pipe cradles, pile supported, extending 215 ft. from the structures into the Mississippi River.  The pipe support structures were designed to withstand the river’s high stage currents and river bank scour to 15 ft. below the pipe cradle; City/Parish East Baton Rouge, North Wastewater Treatment Facility, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
