Natick High School Preliminary Geotechnical Services
Natick, MA

As part of the feasibility study phase in support of site selection for the proposed new high school in the Town of Natick, Massachusetts, RF Walsh retained Pare Corporation to undertake a limited scope geotechnical evaluation of the existing Memorial Field athletic complex to determine the potential for the use of the site as the location for the proposed school.

PARE developed a subsurface exploration program designed to both provide an overview of the site subsurface profile as well as collect sufficient information to evaluate the site conditions.  The exploration program consisted of three borings and the installation of a groundwater monitoring well.  Based upon the subsurface conditions encountered, PARE developed and implemented a laboratory testing program.  Preliminary recommendations were made in relation to the recommended foundation type for the site, implications of subsurface conditions and groundwater upon construction activities, alternative foundation types, and potential site/soil improvements that would likely be required at the site.
