Glenwood Springs, CO, December 26, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Work wrapped up this month on foundation repairs to the City of Glenwood Springs’ Municipal Operations Center. The facility was built in 2002 on unstable soils, and as a result, it had settled to the point sunlight could be seen through cracks in exterior walls. The cracks, some as much as an inch in thickness, gravely threatened the building’s stability and the safety of the city employees who worked in the building. Rather than replace the facility, Glenwood Springs selected MW GOLDEN CONSTRUCTORS (MWGC) to stabilize the structure and repair its sinking and deteriorating foundation. MWGC stabilized the building with two hundred 50-ft-deep compaction grout columns, ultimately raising the facility 4 inches. While dirt was removed around the foundation of the building, a groundwater drain was installed to help prevent future moisture saturation in the soil which had contributed to the building’s settling. Interior walls that had cracked or settled were shored, and some cinder blocks were replaced. The south vestibule and the south parking lot were also replaced during the project.
MWGC has completed other structural foundation repair projects in recent years. The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs’ Montrose Armory was stabilized in 2013. In 2011, MWGC delivered foundation repairs to the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority’s Glenwood Maintenance Facility, which earned an Engineering News Record Best Project Award.
