Foundation work nearing completion at East Boston’s Coppersmith Village, featuring rammed aggregate piers installed by Helical Drilling
The foundation of Coppersmith Village, a $33 million mixed-use development in East Boston featuring 71 residences and approximately 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, is nearing completion, with Helical Drilling about to complete installation of Geopier® Rammed Aggregate Pier® (RAP) elements in the development’s soil. RAP elements reinforce unsuitable soils, providing an improved subgrade in order to support conventional shallow footings and slab-on-grade floor loads. RAPs are particularly suitable for sites with caving soils, contaminated soils and/or shallow groundwater and provide enhanced stiffness of relatively soft soil layers, making RAPs an optimal choice to reinforce foundations of development projects built on sections of Boston, for instance the East Boston Waterfront, which were constructed through land-making with urban fill. RAP installation also generates little to no excess spoils and eliminates the need for casing or dewatering.
The foundation of Coppersmith Village’s south mixed-use building is complete; the building’s first-floor steel podium has been erected, and elevator shafts are about to top off at five stories tall. The south building’s concrete foundation base slab will be poured in mid-September, after which the top four floors will be framed with wood. Coppersmith Village's north mixed-use building’s foundation has been 80%-installed, and elevator shaft erection has begun. The north building’s steel podium will be erected starting the first week of September. Helical Drilling has completed installation of RAPs in the foundations of both mixed-use buildings, which are located along Border Street, and will install RAPs in the future foundation of Coppersmith Village’s 15 townhouse residences, which will be located along Liverpool Street, starting the first week of September.
