Sidewalk Basement Renovation
St. Louis, MO
Completion Date:

Performed a site evaluation to address concerns with the deteriorating condition of the underside of a concrete sidewalk due to water infiltration into the basement area. Concrete surrounding the failing and rusted reinforcement was spalling and beginning to fall onto the acoustical ceiling below.

Non-destructive testing with ground penetrating radar was conducted to locate any reinforcement placed in the multi layered sidewalk. Destructive cores were taken to determine the sidewalk thickness and makeup.

New structural steel interior supports and exterior foundation waterproofing were designed and installed, using a design-build approach. Foresight managed the competitive bid and construction process.
