Project profiles for D'Appolonia projects involving structural vibration monitoring, blasting plan preparation and blast monitoring are provided in the following:
Monitoring of Building Vibrations During Nearby Construction Activities
D'Appolonia was retained to perform pre- and post-construction surveys and vibration monitoring during pile driving operations for installation of steel sheeting along a section of the south shore of the Allegheny River at an apartment complex in the Strip District of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
VE Study and Design Services for Kentucky Lock Addition Project
D’Appolonia had the lead for geotechnical aspects of construction of a cofferdam in an area characterized by unusually hard and abrasive limestone that had a highly irregular surface. Our responsibilities included evaluation of in-the-wet rock excavation techniques, development of an underwater blasting plan, and monitoring of the effects of blasting on existing structures and aquatic life.
