    #SiteVisitTuesday. Rich Wargo and Pedram Bemani were in Margot, St. Martin, representing a local resort owner as third-party reviewers on a seaside cliff stabilization project. The existing cliff was found to be unstable due to several recent years of significant storm surges and was being undercut due to the relatively soft nature of the limestone rock. These conditions were further exacerbated by hurricanes Irma and Maria that decimated parts of the Caribbean in September. Remediation work consisting of loose rock removal, rock anchoring and mesh is currently underway. A subsequent phase of work will include stabilization of the base rock from seasonal wave surges.Rich, based in West Columbia, S.C., noted that it was fortuitous that Pedram recently came on board with Schnabel''s Rockville office from another firm in France a few days before they made the site visit. Pedram''s fluency with both the French language and construction practices was instrumental in communicating with the prime contractor, their geotech engineer, and the local property owner, none of whom are fluent in English. #geology #geotech #geologist #stmartin #cliffs #stabilization #hurricaneirma #hurricanemaria #carribean #rockanchors #limestonecoast

    #SiteVisitTuesday. Project work has taken us to 140 different countries. Bill Billiet, third from left in a gray T-shirt, was digging Mexico just the other day! When not traveling to exotic locales, Bill works from our Rockville, Maryland, office. #geotech #geology #geologist #testboring #SoilBorings #sitevisit #SiteVisitTuesday

    Robin Reed, PG (Blacksburg) and Kenny Megginson, PG (Richmond) attended the 47th Annual Virginia Geological Field Conference in Charlottesville on October 13-14. The highlight of the Piedmont Virginia Community College-based conference was a rigorous field trip focused on Precambrian geology in the Blue Ridge province. A group of about 120 attendees viewed metabasalts, arkoses, and also some of the granitic basement rocks exposed in Ragged Mountain Dams emergency spillwaya past Schnabel project. Kenny was vice president of this years conference and will rotate into the presidency after next years trip. Both he and Robin have been involved with the conference as participants for many years, and more recently as officers. http://vgfc.blogs.wm.edu/. #geology #geologist #blueridgeva #basalt #arkose #precambrian #vgfc2017 #fieldtrips #rockformation

    #SiteVisitTuesday. Steve Fung and Jeremiah Spencer (Baltimore) hit the road again to oversee test borings as part of Stantecs design team for the replacement of the I-95 and Bradshaw Road overpass with a two-span steel girder superstructure bridge. The Maryland Transportation Authority project will provide horizontal and vertical clearances along I-95 for the continuation of express toll lanes (Section 200) north of MD-43. The existing Bradshaw Road horizontal alignment will be maintained while adjusting the profile to account for the increased structure depth of the bridge. #i95 #overpass #highwaybridge #bridges #hittheroad #civilengineering #geology #drillingrig #SoilBorings #materialtesting
