Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project presents an alternative design to the earth-retaining structure to support lateral loading during construction of the foundation of the Worcester Polytechnic Institute new Sports and Recreation Center. The design was chosen based on soil profiles representing the earth surrounding the existing soil nail wall. Through the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM), we created a 3D model of the site to represent the existing conditions, mass excavation and total backfill of the different volumes of earth.
