Fort Davis Playground

Fort Davis Playground Improvements

GeoCapitol conducted a geotechnical engineering investigation for a pavilion, underground water storage, seating, walkways, and a parking lot. GeoCapitol drilled six hand auger test borings in the site redevelopment area to submit for laboratory testing to evaluate subsurface conditions. Hand augers were utilized as opposed to traditional soil boring equipment to protect the park grounds and for ease of site access. The site was steeply sloping in areas of the park which provided the designers challenges related to future grading and positioning of new park features. They conducted an engineering analysis of the data collected and provided recommendations regarding foundations, subdrainage, earthwork, and stormwater management.
