ENDURING. soil & structure
AOG extends serviceability by strengthening ground performance through soil stabilization and creative foundation structures. While deep foundations are capital intensive, they are a somewhat conventional solution for maximum load facilities contending with Kansas City soil impediments. Fortunately, AOG is forward thinking [and doing] and readily challenges status quo. While AOG can deliver deep foundation systems like Auger Cast Piling and Drilled Piers most commonly associated with high load structures, AOG prefers innovative alternatives using Geogrids and aggregates or Rammed Aggregate Pier (RAP) systems that are functional, budget friendly AND promote collaboration between design and construction practices.

Mark Twain Elementary, Kansas City, Kansas: Kansas City Kansas Public Schools underwent an ambitious expansion effort to transform the existing elementary school by three times. Construction was fast-tracked to ensure completion by the start of fall semester. AOG inspected all soils, concrete, steel and asphalt for the project, helping to fulfill District renovations on time for school opening.
Rock Chalk Park, Lawrence, Kansas: Regarded as the largest sports venue in the Midwest, this project required many different types of foundations and structural methods. AOG provided Geotechnical drilling and engineering for the design phase and material inspections and testing during construction.
Cargill Soybean Processing Plant, Kansas City, Missouri: With the associated high risk of differential settlement across the silty river-bottoms, the go-to foundation solution was Rammed Aggregate Piers. AOG completed test borings to 80-100 foot depths as part of our geotechnical engineering investigation.
