SILVER SPRING LIBRARY
Montgomery County, MD
This project provides the Silver Spring community with a new library located within the Central Business District (CBD). The new library is approximately 90,000 gross SF in size and is intended to meet the unique requirements of an increasingly urban, ethnically and culturally diverse residential and business community. The building is five floors plus a basement. During the design stage Balter performed Subsurface investigations with our in-house drill rigs in order to to prepare a comprehensive geotechnical report. All lab testing was performed in our highly accredited laboratory in order to evaluate the soil sampled on site. Extensive evaluations of multiple foundation options, including both shallow and deep, were performed.
Additionally, Balter provided Special Inspections and laboratory materials testing services in our WACEL, CCRL, and AASHTO-certified laboratory facility in accordance with Montgomery County Special Inspections requirements for this project. Balter has worked continuously with Montgomery County in order to ensure their Special Inspections requirements are satisfied.
