Residences of Las Olas

This project consists of the new construction of a 42-story, 380-unit tower with ground retail and an amenity deck and pool on the 8th floor. 

GFA Services
  • GFA performed a preliminary geotechnical exploration consisting of 6 standard penetration test borings to depths ranging from 80-feet below existing grade to 100-feet below existing grade, three exfiltration tests to depths of 10-feet below existing grade, and one day of test pits. 
  • GFA performed a final geotechnical exploration consisting of 4 standard penetration test borings to depths ranging from 175-feet below existing grade to 200-feet below existing grade. GFA provided a Final Geotechnical Report which included test procedures, data collected, evaluation of sub-surface soil conditions, and final engineering recommendations for the proposed construction, along with GFA’s recommended involvement with the evaluation of the foundation construction documents and specifications, involvement with the evaluation of the foundation construction documents and specifications, pile load tests, and on-site monitoring and testing during foundation construction.
  • GFA provided a geophysical investigation which included seismic reflection and electrical resistivity imaging.
  • GFA performed a pre-construction video survey and will perform a post-construction video survey at the project completion.
  • GFA is providing engineering field technicians to perform vibration monitoring services during pile installation activities.
  • GFA is providing engineering field technicians to perform pile installation monitoring services, which includes taking pile grout samples for laboratory compressive strength testing. 
  • GFA is providing engineering field technicians and a certified laboratory to perform construction materials testing services for all soils and concrete materials used for the project.  
  • GFA is providing licensed inspectors to perform threshold inspections for reinforcing steel placements, shoring and re-shoring inspection verification, concrete and grout placement monitoring, pre and post fill cell grouting, and structural steel. 
  • GFA is providing licensed inspectors to perform post-tensioned cable elongation monitoring services.
