Continuing our 50+ year relationship beginning with Mr. James Rouse, Balter is proud of our continued involvement with The Howard Hughes Corporation during the redevelopment of Downtown Columbia which will include three new and reconfigured neighborhoods – Merriweather District, Lakefront District and Central District featuring more than 14 million SF of mixed-use development comprised of 4.3 million SF of commercial office space, 1.25 million SF of street retail, 6,244 residential units and 640 hotel rooms cultural as well as public uses including public parks, trails and more. Balter is providing geotechnical and pavement engineering, Special Inspections, and QA Inspections.
As part of the CM4E-JV Team (DCFA #459-WSA) for St. Elizabeth Water Tower, Balter managed Special Inspections per DCRA and IBC requirements; Materials Laboratory Testing; and Geotechnical and Materials Engineering Consulting during the construction of this 2-Million Million Gallon composite-style elevated water tower, approximately 4,000 LF of 24-inch water transmission mains, drainage structures, pipes, and roadways. These services included Earthwork, Fill Placement; Auger Cast Piles; Reinforcing Steel; Cast-in-Place Structural Concrete; Structural Steel, Welding and Corrosive Coatings, Radiographic NDT, Coatings, and Asphalt pavements; review of construction plans and documents; and all Code Department documentation.
Balter provided comprehensive geotechnical services and Special Inspections for this approximately 3,400 LF boardwalk, towers and bridges across Neabsco Creek and its tidal marsh extending the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail in Pr. Wm. Co. VA. With sensitivity to wetland areas, the geotechnical design incorporated “top-down” construction methods where timber piles were installed using vibratory hammers.
Balter is providing Special Inspections and Materials/Inspection Engineering for DC Water's Enhanced Nitrogen Removal Facility . This $166 million project represents that latest technology and includes seawalls, tunnels, tie-backs, jet grouting, soil nailing, and extensive excavation, shallow and foundations, geo-synthetics, and superstructures.
Balter is pleased that Transient Wounded Warrior Lodge and Parking Structure, National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD is now operational. This LEED Gold Design/Build project includes a 135,416 SF multi-story building, and 161,016 SF 5-level Parking Garage.
