Specifying an aggregate pier or rigid inclusion ground improvement foundation support system can save a significant amount of money versus an overexcavation or deep foundation option for building projects. However, if the specfication is not accompanied by a good baseline geotechnical and structural engineering package that includes specific design requirements, specific contractor qualification requirements, a clear scope of work, QC requirements, and a measurement and basis of payment requirement, some of the cost savings will not be realized.

Zach Scarboro, P.E., will discuss some of the common practices that need to change to avoid added cost and risk to a project. He will highlight areas of best practices that can lower cost and risk while providing clarity to a ground improvement design-build project.

Zach was formerly an Engineer at Geopier Foundation Company. Zach has been involved in the design, estimating, and pre-construction management of specialty geotechnical systems throughout the Southern United States since 2011. Zach holds a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and is a registered Professional Engineer in 2 states. in his spare time, Zach enjoys playing golf and spending time with his wife and two young children
