Kansas City's Geotechnical Drilling and Engineering Specialists!

Children’s Mercy Hospital North Tower Addition.

Kansas City, Missouri

Project Description

AOG assisted in the construction of a 5-story hospital addition over seven levels of parking. The lowest parking level was estimated to be 50 feet below ground, which required the use of extensive shoring and foundation support to protect the existing buildings and adjacent public streets. We provided comprehensive geotechnical engineering, drilling and sampling services for the use of high-capacity foundation elements on the underlying bedrock. We also provided special inspections throughout the construction phase.
