Paine Elementary School

BHATE was retained by Jefferson County Board of Education after problems ocurred with the site during construction. The problems included a major slope failure, soil and floor heave due to high plasticity soils and tremendous amount of surface and ground water problems at the site.

BHATE performed a detailed computer modeling of the slope failure mechanism and developed a stabilization plan that solved the problem and at the same time saved the Board of Education over $500,000 in repair costs.
