Flue-Cured Tobacco

The US Flue-Cured Tobacco Warehouse in Timberlake, North Carolina was expanded by approximately 200,000 square feet in mid to late 2017.  The addition is a steel-framed building with precast concrete wall panels.  Our involvement consisted of testing of the soils for the extensive floor slab to verify that they were adequately compacted, and performing concrete quality control testing services during floor slab construction.  We have also performed evaluations of subsurface conditions in the pavement expansion areas and provided repair recommendations for the pavement system that was present prior to the commencement of the new construction.
