TRC was selected by the Construction Manager to provide full-scope field testing and inspection for this major, $100 million expansion project at Shore Memorial Hospital consisting of an addition to the existing hospital, a new medical office building (MOB), and a parking garage structure. The hospital addition was a 4-story structure while the MOB was a 3-story structure, both of which consisted of steel frame and concrete construction. The associated parking garage is a 5-level structure with a 45x60 ft column grid of precast concrete construction. The MOB hospital addition and parking garage structure are connected by a steel frame box truss bridge that spans Brighton Avenue.
TRC’s field staff were assigned to inspect the contractor’s activities associated with site work (soil compaction, preparation of foundation subgrades, backfilling of foundations), placement of structural concrete, pile driving, erection of structural steel, metal decking, masonry and sprayfireproofing. A team of ACI-certified technicians was also assigned to ensure the quality of all concrete material used on the project. Associated tasks included slump and air-entrainment tests, molding of cylinder specimens for compressive strength testing in our AASHTO/ASTM-accredited laboratory, and monitoring the water cement ratios and batch proportions being used. All soil testing for the project was also completed in TRC’s AASHTO/ ASTM accredited laboratory.
