Black Creek’s IPT Harbour Way in Richmond, California lies on 10.59 acres along the San Francisco Bay’s Harbor Channel. The facility has been designed as a 172,408-s.f. Class-A industrial, dock-high, speculative warehouse building with 10,000 s.f. of office space as well as an associated concrete surface parking lot. In addition to grading and the construction of the warehouse and office spaces, Oltmans Construction is also providing services for landscaping, utilities, open-space, and offsite and onsite improvements.

Due to the project’s location on the harbor, the project team was tasked with mitigating heavy bay mud and high ground water as they prepped for the building foundation. To do so, Oltmans Construction utilized Auger Cast ColumnTM and Drill Displacement ColumnTM (ACC/DDC) technology to increase soil stiffness, bearing capacity, and resistance to liquefaction. 18 inches in diameter and drilled to a depth of 50 feet, the ACC/DDCs were located and installed two beneath each interior pier for structural column support.
