Deep Foundations And Differing Subsurface Conditions

Deep foundation construction problems can arise anywhere. From mountain terrain to coastal areas and everywhere in between, a deep foundation problem can cost your construction project time and money. At the Massachusetts law firm of Davagian Grillo & Semple LLP, we can help you protect your best interests when differing subsurface conditions have derailed your project.

Construction Of Support Systems

It is impossible to see underground and that is why deep foundation problems are so common. The problems usually occur because the wrong type of foundation or earth support system was specified for the subsurface conditions actually encountered. Our lawyers are familiar with and understand the benefits and limitations of all types of earth retention systems and foundation elements:

  • Cofferdams
  • Soil nailed walls
  • Soldier piles and lagging
  • Slurry walls
  • Ground freezing
  • Driven piles
  • Drilled shafts
  • Pressure-injected footings

Unanticipated Delays

When you have begun the construction of a project based on a particular design which is impacted by an unforeseen subsurface condition, you may have to dismantle the entire operation and start from scratch. You may have already purchased materials that can no longer be used based on the new foundation design. If an unanticipated subsurface condition has disrupted your construction project, our Massachusetts attorneys can help you get it back on track.

Representing All Sides

No one can see underground, but construction projects depend upon geotechnical engineers to make important decisions regarding deep foundation support systems before a project is underway. Whether you are an owner, contractor or engineer, when something goes wrong between analysis and execution, we can make sure your rights are protected.
