The Long Beach City School District planned capital improvements at three different schools within the district under a $29M expansion and renovation project. The three schools, located on a barrier island off the south shore of Long Island, included the 380,820-sq-ft Long Beach High School, East Elementary School, and the Lido Complex (a combined elementary school and middle school building). Improvements ranged from an elevator addition to building and classroom additions providing latest technology, a more efficient learning center and a firm foundation.

Pre-Hurricane Sandy expansion and renovation, Tectonic was retained to conduct a supplemental investigation and evaluation of the subsurface conditions at each site. The investigation included Seismic Cone Penetrometer Testing (SCPT) to evaluate the in-situ shear-wave velocity profile of the sites. A geotechnical report was prepared with specific design recommendations for each site that included auger cast piles and micropiles. Following Hurricane Sandy, Tectonic performed test pit and test boring investigations to determine the extent of foundation damage that was present at each site.
