Block 185 is a 37 floor building with 6 basement floors below ground surface which is below groundwater, the project is within 300 feet from the Colorado river which requires a support of excavation that acts as cutoff wall.  Malcolm design-build the support of excavation for the basement by utilizing the structural slurry wall technique, the slurry walls will have multiple functions for the project being the basement walls, the support of excavation allowing excavation to extend 65 feet below grade and approx. 40 feet below ground water level, and also acted as a cutoff wall allowing mass excavation to be performed without major dewatering.
The slurry wall was completed ahead of schedule with the highest quality.
