Long Bridge Park
Hillis-Carnes provided Construction Materials Testing and Inspection services for this prestigious park project, located in Arlington, Virginia. Long Bridge Park has more than 30-acres of recreation and open space, and is a distinctive showplace of environmentally sound redevelopment.
The scope of work included massive earthwork testing, inspections of reinforced soil slopes for the esplanade, pile foundations driving and monitoring inspections, as well as testing and inspections of remediated contaminated soil placement. This project posed many challenges due to the nature of the site, existing fill materials, and unsuitable soils. The services provided by Hillis-Carnes were instrumental in resolving many problems, which were brought to the attention of the Park Development Division, and provided valuable suggestions for the project towards its successful completion.
