DESCRIPTION: Over the years, The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde have developed a new headquarters facility in Grand Ronde, Oregon. The facility includes a ±30,000 SF Health and Wellness Center, which serves the local community. The Health and Wellness Center is a cross-shaped, wood‑framed structure that is two-story in the central portion and single‑story around the perimeter.
SERVICE: Foundation Engineering completed a geotechnical investigation for the project and provided construction-phase inspection and testing services during site grading, foundation construction, and pavements. The center was later expanded and we provided consultation for those additions. Project challenges included investigation of perched ground water, soft soils, and potentially expansive clay.
