Streets of Buckhead – Parcel A
Owner: Ben Carter Properties
General Contractor: Balfour Beatty Construction Company
The Streets of Bukhead development consists of a multi-tract, mixed use development in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. The initial phase of development included three parcels, each encompassing at least a city block. ABE provided geotechnical design/construction services for Parcel A, including 32,000 square feet of permanent shoring, 25,000 square feet of temporary shoring, 70 drilled pier foundations, rock anchors and a site-wide temporary dewatering system.
The Parcel A structure includes 3 to 5 levels of below-grade parking. To maximize space within the structure, the perimeter walls were typically close to the property lines. For this reason, Balfour Beatty recommended the use of ABE’s permanent shoring system with shotcrete lagging. With this system, the distance between the property line and the face of wall could be as little as 18 inches
