BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA – National Service Center
The Atlanta Area Council purchased roughly five acres of land in 2002 to construct a 50,000 SF headquarters building to house the Boy Scouts of America.
As part of the project, Willmer performed a geotechnical site investigation, which required extensive cut and fill to achieve proposed finished grades. During the investigation, Willmer encountered three different subsurface conditions; partially weathered rock/rock, residual soil, and compacted fill. Willmer also performed a site- specific seismic hazard assessment to estimate the ground motions and spectral response for use in the structure’s seismic design.
Additionally, Willmer provided construction materials testing, which included earthwork compaction control, footing inspections, rebar steel inspection, concrete placement monitoring and compressive strength testing.
