GEMTEC was retained for geotechnical engineering services in support of the design and construction of the École Fredericton Nord. GEMTEC was awarded a Municipal/Civil Showcase Award from the Association of Consulting Engineers of New Brunswick for their work on this project.

Project highlights include:

  • Use of seismic CPT, in addition to conventional geotechnical boreholes, to comprehensively evaluate sub-surface conditions
  • Assess the potentially liquefiable soils
  • Geotechnical recommendations for cost-saving shallow-foundation design
  • Surcharge and settlement monitoring
  • Construction inspection services
  • ACEC award winner
