1 Work Type: Geotechnical Studies Soils Analysis & Recommendations The first section, Work Type Definition, provides a detailed explanation of the work type. The second section, Work Type Submittal Requirements, identifies the requirements a firm must meet to become pre-qualified to perform this work type for Hennepin County. Work Type Definition: Geotechnical Studies I. Description A Geotechnical study includes preparation of final boring logs and an analysis of subsurface conditions and materials, submitted in the form of a report. The report includes, but is not limited to; bearing capacity for deep or shallow foundations, settlement analysis, slope stability analysis, locations of unsuitable soils, subcut depths and type of backfill, muck excavation limits and treatment, culvert treatments, pavement designs, and geologic recommendations. The report should also include definite foundation recommendations for providing a safe and cost effective foundation system. In addition, this work type may include hiring and managing Standard Penetration Test & Rock Coring, and/or Cone Penetration Test subcontractors. Subcontractors must be on the Pre-Qualified list for those work types. II. Standards and Specifications Standards and specifications required for a project under this work type may include the following: A. All tasks will be performed in accordance with current ASTM, AASHTO, and, for highway construction projects, MnDOT standards and specifications. The current Specifications for Subsurface Investigation & Geotechnical Analysis and Design Recommendations can be found at: III. Provided By Hennepin County Information to be supplied by Hennepin County for a project may include the following: A. Plans showing existing topography, proposed alignments, locations of the existing and proposed structures and locations of borings. B. Completed boring logs in gint format. C.
