Stiver Engineering was retained to provide structural design through a reinforced concrete foundation design for the hydrotest machine and the steel building that covers the machine in Houston, Texas. We designed the machine foundation as a pit to capture and provide water storage for the reuse of water during the testing procedure. The reinforced concrete pit is 47 feet by 12.5 feet by 13 feet deep.
Stiver Engineering was retained by the client to provide structural design through a foundation design for a 1,500-ton cable carousel that was located adjacent to the Houston, Texas Ship Channel. We provided a foundation design that consisted of 52-24 inch diameter steel piles, which were filled with concrete in order to provide enough section to prevent pile failure in the soft soil.
