NGE-TFT conducted a two-phase geotechnical exploration program at the site of a proposed electrical power generation station located in Eklutna, Alaska. The evaluation consisted of a series of subsurface borings aimed at identifying the conditions across the site, including quantifying if any areas of residual permafrost existed across the site. Temperature acquisition cables (a.k.a. thermistor strings) were installed at select boring locations across the site in order to monitor ground temperatures and help confirm that no isolated areas of permafrost exist within the footprint of the proposed facilities. Foundation recommendations were developed for each of the proposed facilities in close cooperation with the structural design team. NGE-TFT was also contracted to perform extensive infiltration testing and groundwater level monitoring across the site in support of the surface drainage design for the site.
NGE-TFT conducted a series of geotechnical explorations at the sites of Verizon’s proposed cellular network towers in areas surrounding Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Juneau, Alaska. The explorations consisted of both geotechnical borings and electrical resistivity measurements. NGE-TFT developed foundation recommendations for both tower and support communication modules.
