Industry News being installed for the MDC Wet Weather Expansion Project in Hartford, CT. For the Connecticut State DOT’s recent Contract E project in New Haven, Hayward Baker designed and installed over 60,000 ft2 (5574 m2) of shotcrete and soil nail temporary earth support, approximately 70 drilled micropiles, plus 30 drilled shafts. To kick off the opening of the new office, Hayward Baker hosted two seminars in the New England region for developers, contractors, architects, and engineers. Each seminar was a full-day event from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, with refreshments and lunch included. Engineers had the opportunity to earn PDH credits for these events. The seminars focused on geotechnical construction and ground improvement, offering a wide overview of projects and techniques such as aggregate piers, rigid inclusions, jet grouting, temporary earth support, geotechnical instrumentation, and driven piles.
