We are doing a project for Wentworth Institute of Technology, and the project will take place at the tennis court of the school. Site location: 550 Parker st, Boston MA when you google the address given above, you will see the location of the tennis court is right in front of the location given above. The picture attached shows the address given and you will see a green space is where the project is taking place. Then, I need you to find the topo map, soil map, bedrock details and water table on a specific site in Boston area. This project is due Wednesday Feb 3, 2016

We need a solution that does not require demolition of a column. Solutions needs to be creative and avoid having columns in the middle of spaces. Drawings are available and will be provided to shortlisted parties. We only need a solution (as a sketch), we will handle the drawings from our side.

I'm doing a senior design project, which is design an academic building for Wentworth Institute of Technology. Please see attached for project details. Geotechnical considerations: - Recommendations for the type of foundation we must use in 5-6 story academic building. - Soil parent material - Depth to groundwater - Bedrock type - Bedrock depth - Boring logs for the site. Review this geotechnical information and how it relates to your project (i.e., foundation design, road work, grading, etc.). As part of the report, provide a topographical map of the site that includes the following information: - Site topography - Significant land features (wetlands, rivers/streams and other water bodies, existing roads, etc.) - Scale and orientation As you start your senior design project, you will immediately see that you need information on thesoils and bedrock that exist at your site. You will have to request the information you need from your "Geotechnical Consultant". But to start the process, you first have to do your own library research tofind whatever information there is for your site. At a minimum, your design team must find the sitetopography and the general description of the soils that are on the site. Now, having this initial information, you will position the structures and facilities that your group is planning. Based on thetopography and the neighboring streets and roads, and the wetlands or rock outcrops, where do youwant to locate your building(s), and parking lots and detention basins (if needed) also, where are the major utilities, particularly those affected by gravity. To start this process, your group should go the WIT library and search out the U.S. Geological Survey topographic plans (also called Quad or Quadrangle Sheets) for your site. Then, for sites in Massachusetts, look up the appropriate Soil Survey for the county you are in. Most counties are available in hardcopy, but a few are on-line now. Now go through the following steps: • Look for the air-photo map with your site and determine the soil units and boundaries for the land parcel you are going to develop. • Determine what the symbols refer to - the particular soil formation name. What type of soilisexpected? Getacopyofthedescriptionsforeachunitonyoursite. • What is the geological origin for each soil unit? You will need to know the geological originfor the soils. The variation of soils on the site may affect where you locate buildings and other facilities. • Determine the general engineering properties for the soils on your site by digging through thevarious tables. At a minimum you need to determine the gradation of soils and plasticity. How much passes the No. 200 sieve? What is the D10 and the Cu? What are the Atterberg Limits? What is the expected permeability of the soils? Are cobbles and boulders expected? • What other information is available on the site soils? Shear strength? Compressibility?

I need an Oregon certified engineer to run analysis and generate a report on a block wall we built on our property. The report needs to state that the blocks can be free stacked 4 rows high on firm soil and will meet the local wind and seismic code requirements. The wall was built 3 years ago but we are just now getting the permitting done. Neighbor reported the wall : /. There has been zero movement on in the wall (settling, sagging or tipping) - The wall is built on decomposed granite. The wall is made with 2,500 psi or better concrete and the dimensions of each block are 2'x2'x6' and each weighs 3,600 lbs. The overall dimensions of the wall are 8' high by 243' long.

I am submitting a pre-application to the county of San bernardino to get feedback on a project I am hoping to construct in the next year. I am hoping to get approved to build a campsite with shelter structures for guests. I need to provide the county with a proposed site map, topography not included. I have used sketch up to make my own site plan, but I need to show them something a little more professional so I can get better feed back! Looking for one plan that shows the entire property with the structures and also a blow up of just the area of land that I am proposing structures. Site plans should be 11x17 and created in CAD or a similar program that will be able to show everything to scale. I would need be able to talk to you on the phone or via email to fill you in on the project, and to show you what I have! Hoping this wont take too long, and obviously since you wont be visiting the actual land I am hoping you would be able to complete this site plan by ripping information from google maps or something similar! Not sure how the fancy programs work! I am hoping this wouldnt take longer than a day! Please submit quotes and an example of your work! Out of area submissions welcome! I am assuming this is something easy for Architecture students to do, so student feel free to apply too! Best, Kelly
