Box Park Logistics Center
Hillis-Carnes was contracted by the Developer to provide Geotechnical Engineering Services and Construction Materials Testing and Inspection Services for the new construction of Box Park Logistics Center, an approximate 1,500,000 SF warehouse campus with associated office space and surrounding parking in Cinnaminson, New Jersey. The warehouse is being constructed on a 72.35-acre parcel, which is conveniently located off Interstate 95, adjacent to Metropolitan Philadelphia.
A skilled and experienced crew, working under the supervision of Project Manager Andrew Hajec, PE, and Principal Engineer David Harmanos, P.E., performed the Geotechnical Engineering services for this project, which involved exploring the site of work, the performance of laboratory tests, engineering analyses, and the preparation of a geotechnical report. To accomplish these objectives, a subsurface exploration program was performed by Hillis-Carnes consisting of 17 Standard Penetration Test (SPT) soil borings and 8 Test Pits at locations. Representative portions of each soil sample were transported to Hillis-Carnes’ laboratory, where they were visually reviewed to verify the field classifications. Groundwater was encountered in all borings except for one. After completion of all field exploration and laboratory testing, a geotechnical engineering report was prepared and submitted. The report included the logs of all test holes and a summary of the laboratory testing program results. We included our engineering analyses and recommendations for the geotechnical design and construction of the project.
Hillis-Carnes is now providing the Construction Material Testing and Inspection services under the supervision of Project Manager Michael Platkin. Mr. Matthew Cecchine is the Lead Engineering Technician on the project, with Mr. Joseph Roche serving as the Field Engineer. Our extensive scope of work includes the testing and inspections of mass grading/fill placement, utilities, modular/segmental retaining wall monitoring, stormwater management facilities, underground stormwater management facilities, spread footing foundations, cast-in-place concrete, reinforcing steel, floor flatness/levelness, structural steel, pre-cast concrete erection, structural load-bearing masonry, and pavement. This project is anticipated to be completed in 2023.
