1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND

Harder Associates Engineering Consulting Inc. (Harder Associates) was retained by

CJP Architects Ltd. (CJP) on behalf of the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality

(NRRM) to conduct a geotechnical assessment and provide foundation and floor

recommendations, based on a previous report, for a washroom addition to the

Terminal Building at the Fort Nelson Airport. The site is located approximately 7.5

kilometres northeast of Fort Nelson, British Columbia.

The proposed single storey addition, washroom facilities, proposed to be constructed

on the north side of the existing Terminal Building, have a proposed footprint of 72.5

m 2 . Due to the small footprint and possible temporary (a new terminal building is

being discussed) nature of the addition, the client requested foundation and slab

recommendations without performing a geotechnical investigation. Therefore, the

recommendations provided in this report are based off a third party geotechnical

investigation performed in 2004.

Harder Associates cannot verify the authenticity of the third party report or that the

subsurface soils in the proposed addition footprint will be similar to those

encountered during the geotechnical investigation.

1.2 OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the geotechnical assessment were to:



provide geotechnical recommendations for cast-in-place concrete piles,

screw piles, and concrete footings; and,

provide geotechnical recommendations for floating and structural floor

slabs.

2.0 REVIEW OF PREVIOUS REPORTS

Harder Associates personnel reviewed a report provided by CJP personnel, written by

J.R. Paine & Associates Ltd. titled “Geotechnical Investigation, Light Standard

Supports, Fort Nelson Airport, Fort Nelson, B.C.”, dated April 2004, File No.

GP6132-2. A brief summary of the information obtained from the referenced report

is as follows:

Three boreholes were drilled between the terminal building and apron on 05

April 2004. The maximum depth of exploration was 9.5 m.



Surficial topsoil and asphalt were encountered overlying silty sand and clay

till. The clay till extended to the maximum exploration depth in all three

boreholes.

Seepage was encountered in boreholes BH04-1 and BH04-2 but no sloughing

was encountered during drilling.

The referenced report is included in Appendix A.

3.0 FOUNDATION RECOMMENDATIONS

There is more than one suitable option for the type of foundation system used

however, most foundations systems mobilize their full support and behave

differently. Therefore, the use of several different types of foundations systems to

support the same structure is not recommended. It is recommended that the same

type of foundation supporting the existing terminal building is used to support the

proposed addition.

3.1 SCREW PILES

Lighter foundation loads may be supported by screw anchors. Frost jacking is not an

issue for screw anchors; however, the helix plates/plates must be completely below

the depth of frost penetration, estimated to be 2.5 m at this site.

The desirable depth for screw anchors is 4.5 m. The design for screw anchor piles

having a steel shaft diameter of 127 mm (5 inches) and a helix diameter of 457 mm

(18 inches) is calculated using the following: 1

h h u c h q 0.5 y


1 Canadian Geotechnical Society, 2006. Canadian Foundation Engineering Manual 4 th

Edition, p. 267.


File No.: FN321

Page 3

Where:

h = Individual helix bearing capacity;

h = Projected helix area (0.1514 m 2 );

u = Undrained shear strength of the soil at helix (80 kPa);

= Unit Weight of the soil (20 kN/m 3 );

h = Depth to helical bearing plate (4.5 m);

= Diameter of the helical plate (0.457 m); and,

c , q y Bearing capacity factors for local shear conditions 2 (N c =31, N q =21,

N y =10).

Generally, across the site using an average undrained shear strength of 80 kPa, Q h =

669 kN. The total capacity of the helical pile equals the bearing capacity of the soil

applied to the individual helical plate(s) plus the skin friction of the shaft. Therefore,

the total bearing capacity of the screw anchor with a shaft diameter exceeding 100

mm is:

Q f is calculated as:

h f

f s

Where:

= Diameter of the pile shaft (0.457 m);

= Height from helix plate to top of soil in skin friction area (0.6 m and 1.9 m); and,

F s = Skin friction of soil in h area (50 kPa and 54 kPa).

Generally, across the site using an average undrained shear strength of 80 kPa, Q f =

53 kN for a 4.5 m long screw pile.

Using the above formula, the following outlines the bearing capacities:



A single helix pile will have an ultimate load capacity of 722 kN;

A double helix pile will have an allowable load capacity of 1171 kN;


2 Das, Braja M., Principles of Foundation Engineering 6 th Edition, pg. 133. Values

taken from Table 3.3.


File No.: FN321

Page 4




For double helix piles the minimal spacing between the helixes is three

times the diameter of the largest helix (in this case 1.4 m);

The minimal spacing between single helix screw piles is three times the

diameter of the helix (in this case 1.4 m); and,

The design for screw anchor piles having different dimensions than the one

mentioned above can be provided on request.

The factored geotechnical screw pile resistance is given as follows:

ɸR n

where:

ɸ is the geotechnical resistance factors as follows:

ɸ = 0.4 for axial compression piles; and,

ɸ = 0.3 for axial tension (uplift) piles.

Screw anchors may be installed in frozen soil. Screw anchors are a favourable

foundation system for structures with lighter loads. These anchors are provided on a

design-build basis. We recommend the anchor designs be prepared or reviewed by a

qualified geotechnical engineer.

3.2 CAST-IN-PLACE CONCRETE PILES

Augered, cast-in-place concrete piles are an ideal system to support the proposed

structure at this site.

Our specific design criteria and recommendations for these foundation systems are as

follows:

1. Pile foundation loads may be supported on piles designed as straight shaft or end

bearing cast-in-place concrete piles.

2. Ultimate values for the design of skin friction and end bearing cast-in-place

concrete piles are presented in Table 3.1:

3.2.

Where:

and

A p is the area of the pile tip (m 2 ); and,

A s is the area of the pile shaft (m 2 ).

The skin friction contribution of the upper 2.0 m of pile below finished grade

should be ignored in the determination of pile capacity.

3. Construct all piles, even lightly loaded piles, with tip depths three times the

depth of seasonal frost penetration to provide sufficient pull out resistance to

potential frost jacking. The frost penetration for exterior concrete piles is

estimated at 2.5 m; therefore, the minimum pile tip depth will be 7.5 m.

4. Typically, belled piles are used to support heavier loads than straight-shaft piles.

In order to derive the design bearing capacity, the base of any belled pile must

be at least five bell diameters below finished surface, or at least 4.0 m below

ground surface in the clay till, whichever depth is greater. End bearing, belled,

cast-in-place concrete piles formed in the clay till may be designed for an

ultimate end bearing of 720 kPa. There is no skin friction contribution in

calculating the capacity of belled piles.

5. The bell base must be at least 200 mm high and the roof of the bell must be no

steeper than 60 degrees, measured from horizontal.

6. Seepage was encountered during borehole drilling so seepage or sloughing will

occur during pile excavations. Casing will be required if seepage or sloughing is


File No.: FN321

Page 7

encountered. Cobbles and boulders are commonly found in till, were visible at

surface, and may cause problems during excavation.

7. During construction, steel reinforcement and concrete must be placed

immediately following pile drilling (and belling if undertaken). Water or slough

must be immediately pumped or otherwise removed prior to placement of

concrete. As such, the immediate placement of concrete following drilling and

belling can improve construction progress and quality of pile construction.

8. Pile shafts must be adequately reinforced to withstand the imposed stresses.

9. Place a void-forming material with a thickness of at least 150 mm beneath grade

beams, foundation concrete or other structural elements supported by piles (all

pile types) to prevent uplifting by soil heaving.

10. The building design must allow no load transfer from stable building elements

supported by the pile and grade beam foundation to potentially vertically

moving building elements supported by the soil or grade supported floors.

3.3 BASEMENT FOOTINGS

Basement footings founded at depths below 2.5 m will likely not be subject to

movements by frost. Footings founded above this depth are subject to movement by

frost, and therefore, will require insulation and heating to prevent frost penetration

below the footing. The recommended insulation configuration for footings above

2.5 m can be provided if required. Temporary structures or structures tolerant to

some movement may be placed on footings at depths within 2.5 m of finished grades.

The following recommendations are made for shallow footings:

1. The footings must be founded on undisturbed native soil. No footings should

be constructed on fill or topsoil.

2. Excavate and remove all topsoil and fill to expose undisturbed native soil as

the founding stratum for footings.

3. Prepare the founding surface by removing any pockets of soft or organic soil

to a uniform bearing surface. The founding surface must be maintained in an

undisturbed state. The surface should not be left exposed to the environment

which could result in wetting, softening or drying.


File No.: FN321

Page 8


4. In areas beneath footings, excavate to expose the founding stratum below the

footing level. Backfill over-excavated areas below the footing with concrete.

5. The footings must be adequately reinforced to distribute the applied loads

and also have sufficient stiffness to distribute local overstresses.

6. Design footings for an allowable bearing pressure of 160 kPa for the silty

sand and clay till. The minimum width for a footing as required by the

applicable building code must be used in design regardless of bearing

capacity considerations.

7. A qualified geotechnical engineer should inspect all footing bearing surfaces

prior to casting footings.

8. Granular backfill for non-basement footings is not recommended because

frost penetration is greater in granular soils than in clayey soils. In cases

where the footing supports a basement wall however, granular backfill is

preferred because it provides better subsurface drainage on the exterior of the

basement wall (lowers the hydrostatic pressure) and tends to settle less than

uncompacted clayey soil backfill. Where granular backfill of basement walls

is used, insulation boards may be required above the footings to prevent frost

penetration below the footing.

9. Settlement of the footings will be less than 25 mm total or differential for the

allowable bearing pressures recommended herein.

Basement and retaining walls must be designed to support the horizontal loads

imposed by the earth behind the wall. If the backfill behind the walls cannot be fully

drained, the hydrostatic forces from impounded water must be added to the wall

loads. Any surcharge loading at the top of these walls, such as parked vehicles, must

be included in the wall loading. The structural design of these walls must provide

mechanisms to prevent leakage, such as water stops and planned shrinkage joints to

minimize random cracking. The exterior of the walls require heavy water proofing

materials.

Place a minimum 600 mm of impermeable clay soil at surface to reduce surface

infiltration into the granular backfill. Provide factory installed geotextile wrapped

plastic perforated subdrain pipes around the base of the basement or retaining wall.

Provide for gravity discharge of the subdrain pipe to a frost-free sump, which is

drained by gravity or level activated pumping.

The soil properties to use in the design of the basement and retaining walls are

provided in Appendix A.

4.0 FLOOR RECOMMENDATIONS

4.1 GRADE SUPPORTED FLOORS

Our recommendations for a grade supported floor slab are as follows:

1. Excavate the existing subgrade soils below the proposed floor slab to

undisturbed, native silty sand. Construction on fill material of unknown quality

and composition can result in uneven settlement or heave. Remove all topsoil

from the floor area during subgrade preparation. Remove all loose soil and

debris. Soft, wet areas, which do not have sufficient trafficability for

construction purposes, should be further excavated and replaced with the pit run

sand or gravel that complies to the specifications in Table 4.1.

2. Scarify and uniformly compacted the upper 200 mm of the subgrade to a

minimum 95% of its maximum dry density as determined by test ASTM D698.

Adjust the water content of the subgrade to within 2.0% wet of the optimum

water content.

3. Any fill material required to raise the grade before construction of the grade

supported floor should be a non-frost active granular soil. Place the structural

fill in lifts not exceeding 150 mm uncompacted thickness and compact to a

minimum 95% of its SPDD as determined by test ASTM D698. Adjust the

water content of the subgrade clay to within 2.0% of the optimum water content.

4. Place 25 mm crushed granular base course, which complies with the

specifications as shown on Table 4.1 and 150 mm thick, on the compacted

subgrade or sub-base. The granular base should be compacted to a minimum

98% of its SPDD as determined by test ASTM D698 using a vibratory

compactor. Water may be used as a compaction aid.

5. Install a layer of polyethylene sheeting 150 m (minimum) thick between the

granular base and the concrete slab to prevent the migration of moisture through

the floor.


File No.: FN321

Page 10

6. Care must be taken during the installation of water and sewer lines to ensure that

any leaks will drain to a sump and will not collect under the floor slab.

7. The building design must allow no load transfer from stable building elements

supported by the foundation to potentially vertically moving building elements

supported by the soil or grade supported floors.

8. Provide positive site drainage away from the building. Minimum slopes of at

least 2% are recommended. Down spouts must have extensions to direct their

flow to discharge points at least 2.0 m away from the building face and

discharge to an area with clearly defined drainage away from the building.

9. Provide separation boards between the floor slab and any footing-supported

structures. This separation prevents load transfer from the moving floor to the

stable, footing supported structure.

10. ABSOLUTELY DO NOT place reinforcing steel to connect the grade supported

floor slab to the edge of the footing. Such reinforcement has two consequences.

First, there will be a major crack and fault in the floor along a line parallel to the

grade beam face at exactly the end of the connecting steel. Second, a strongly

reinforced connection can rotate the top of the footing outward as the floor

adjacent heaves. Structural damage, such as the displacement and pop out of

plate glass windows, has been observed.

11. Use sleeves through the grade-supported floor slab and telescoping or collapsing

connections for all pipes passing through or supported by the grade-supported

floor.

12. Review the building design to identify and revise any construction details which

allow load transfer from moving grade-supported building elements to stable

structurally supported building elements.

Infrastructure, Section 202, Table 202-C.

4.2 STRUCTURALLY SUPPORTED FLOORS

Where heaving or settlement will have unacceptable impacts on floor serviceability,

local areas of structurally supported floors should be provided. For example,

structural floors are often placed below the door swing areas of external doors.

Alternatively, ensure that the top of floor slabs below the exterior door swing is at

least 150 mm below the underside of the door. Floor slabs can heave to block the

swing of doors that are structurally supported by perimeter grade beams.

Our recommendations for structurally supported floors are as follows:

1. The floor should be designed to derive its support structurally from the pile and

grade beam foundation system.

2. The void or crawl space must be a minimum 150 mm below the underside of the

floor slab.

3. If a crawl space is used, provision must be made for accumulated waters to drain

to a frost-free sump by sloping the crawl space floor. Additionally, the soil

below the crawl space should be covered with 150 m polyethylene sheeting

held in place by at least 50 mm of sand. Alternately, a thin concrete mud floor

may be used on the bottom of the crawl space. Ventilation must be provided to


File No.: FN321

Page 12

the crawl space during the non-freezing season to remove moisture

accumulations. It is desirable to design the ventilation system with vents that

may be closed with insulated covers during freezing weather.

Void form systems that rely on the decomposition of an organic void forming

material should be avoided.

5.0 SULPHATE ATTACK

No testing was conducted for water-soluble sulphate contents. As the sulphate

content is unknown, Harder Associates would recommend that the concrete be

designed for severe sulphate levels (Class S-2) with sulphate resistant Portland

Cement (Type 50) having a minimum specified 28-day compressive strength of 32

MPa and a maximum water-cement ratio of 0.45 (see Table 3 in CAN/CSA A23.1-

2009). Calcium chloride or any other admixture containing chlorides should not be

used since the sulphate resisting property of the cement would be reduced. Calcium

salts used as an accelerating admixture should also be avoided as they may increase

the severity of sulphate attack.

If Portland Cement (Type 50) is unavailable or cannot be used due to adverse

construction considerations, then Type 10 cement in combination with 30% by mass

of cement (a little less that 30% by mass of cementing materials) of a Type F or CI

fly ash, is expected to produce sulphate resistance equivalent or superior to concrete

made with a Type 50.

Such concretes have demonstrated good performance in CSA A23.1-09 Table 3 S-1,

S-2 and S-3 sulphate exposure environments. The technical basis for this practice

had its origins in work done by HBT, AGRA Limited and AGRA Earth &

Environmental Ltd in the late 1980’s for the major cement companies in British

Columbia. Referenced publications are:

Sulphate Resistance of Different Types of Portland Cements with and without

Supplementary Cementing Materials by D. Hatch and D.R Morgan

Supplying Concrete for Sulphate Conditions by Mark Stewart


File No.: FN321

Page 13

To enhance durability, an appropriate amount of air entrainment as per CSA

Specification CAN/CSA A23.1-2009, Clause 4.3.3 and Table 4, is also recommended

for all concrete exposed to freezing and thawing at this site.

There may be other design criteria or exposure conditions as outlined in Tables 11

and 14 of CSA A23.1-2009 that could necessitate additional requirements for

subsurface concrete.

If concrete construction proceeds during the winter, Harder Associates recommends

that the concrete be manufactured and placed in a manner that complies with the cold

weather provisions of CSA Concrete Specifications CAN/CSA-A23.1. This

includes:





using a minimum concrete temperature of 10 degrees Celsius;

heating formwork and reinforcing steel to at least 10 degrees Celsius prior to

placing concrete;

heating and hoarding the concrete as soon as practicable after the concrete is

placed and maintaining the temperature of concrete made to CSA exposure

class S-2 at 10 degrees Celsius for a period of at least 7 days or for the time

necessary to attain 70% of the specified design strength; and,

removing the protection at an appropriate rate at the end of the curing period

to avoid cracking the concrete due to sudden temperature change.

6.0 EARTHQUAKE DESIGN PARAMETERS

The soils at the site are generally clay fill overlying clay till. Pertinent seismic data 4

for the proposed office building is provided in Table 6.1 through 6.4, inclusive.



The undrained shear strength is: 50 kPa > S u > 100 kPa;

Site Classification for Seismic Response is Site Class “D” with a

corresponding Average Shear Wave Velocity of 180 m/s < Vs < 360 m/s;

INTRODUCTION

This report presents the results of the geotechnical investigation undertaken for the

proposed light standards upgrade at the Fort Nelson Airport near Fort Nelson, Rc. The new

standards will be replacing existing lighting situated on the airside of the main terminal building,

between the building and apron. A total of 3 light standards will be replaced. It is understood

that few details with respect to the method, size, and condition 0 f the existing 1ight standard

foundation supports are known. At this time, it is understood that new foundations will be

constructed for the new lighting. The easiest and least intrusive method of foundation would

appear to be a pile foundation system.

FIELD INVESTI GATI0 N

. The field investigation for this project consisted of drilling and sampling 3 deep testholes

within each existing light standard. Testhole 04-1 was located at the center standard. Testholes

04-2 and 04-3 were located at the north end standard and south end standard respectively. The

testholes were drilled to depths of 9.5m (Testhole 04-1), and to 6.Om(Testholes 04-2 and 04-3).


J.R. Paine &Associates Ltd. 2

The deep testholes were placed to establish a continuous soil profile complete with strength

parameter testing for foundation design requirements.

The field investigation was undertaken utilizing a truck-mounted soils testing drill unit.

All boreholes were advanced with l50mm diameter solid stem augers in 1.5m depth increments.

A continuous log of the soils encountered was maintained on site during the drilling operation of

each testhole. Noted were soil types, transitions, color, plasticity, relative moisture, consistency,

inclusions, and any other notable physical feature. The auger cuttings were sampled at 0.75m

depth intervals for laboratory analysis. Standard penetration tests were performed at regular

intervals of 1.5m in TH04-l. Upon completion of the drilling program all testholes were

backfilled with drill cuttings.

LABORATORY TESTING

All samples removed from the augers were submitted to the J.R. Paine and AssoCiates

I

Ltd. Grande Prairie laboratory for routine indice testing. All samples were tested for m6isture

content. From these, selected sand samples were processed for grain size distribution. ..J single

sample of clay was tested for liquid limit and plastic'limit determination.

SUBSURFACE SOIL CONDITIONS

For a detailed description of the soils encountered and testing performed specific to each

testhole location, refer to the testhole logs attached. Sod and topsoil, l50mm in thickness, was

encountered at Testholes 04-1 and 04-3. Testhole 04-2 was placed in a paved area revealing

60mm of ACP structure. No gravel was encountered beneath the ACP.

The native inorganic soils encountered at this site initiated with a sand deposit. The sand

exhibited 15% to 32% silt based upon the results of 2 sieve analysis (attached). The sand was of

fine to medium grain size.

A standard penetration test (SPT) 'N' value of 16 blows per 300mm

denoted a sand of medium density. The sand stratum was, primarily, in a damp state although a

zone of saturation was encountered at the bottom of the deposit (where situated directly above

the base clay soils). The sand terminated at depths of2.0m to 2.6m below the ground surface.

The base deposit encountered to full termination depth of all testholes was a glacial

deposit of clay till. The till was characteristically a dense silty clay base deposit exhibiting a

sandy texture and containing occasional pebble to gravel size stones. Liquid limit and plastic


J.R. Paine &Associates Ltd. 3

limit test results of 30% and 14% respectively denote a clay of low to medium plasticity.

Moisture content values were in the mid to upper teen range. Standard penetration test results of

12 blows per 300mm penetration to 16 blows per 300mm penetration denote a clay of stiff

consistency.

Some minor free water seepage was encountered during the advancement of TH04-1 and

TH04-2. The water was dribbling into these testholes at the sand-clay interface, 2.5m to 2.6m

below the ground surface. No significant accumulation of water was encountered at the end of

drilling. No testhole sloughing was encountered.

RECOMMENDATIONS

The soil conditions encountered at this site are considered to be suitable for bored, castin-place

concrete piles.

The lighting standards will subject the piles to both lateral loads and

vertical loads. The following design parameters may be applied to the pile sizing and reinforcing

requirements:

the concrete placement.

All holes should be carefully inspected to ensure that no water or slough

material is present in the hole during concrete placement. Casing for piles and should be readily

available on site to accommodate sloughing conditions or an excess of ingressing ground water.

It is recommended that all piles be adequately reinforced. Concrete for all piles should be

adequately compacted. The pile concrete should be placed as soon as possible after the pile has

been bored.

Screw piles may be considered as an alternative to conventional bored, cast-in-place

concrete piles. It will be difficult to install screw piles through the frozen ground surface. An

allowable soil end bearing value of 200 kilopascals (Clay Till) may be applied to the size

selection calculations of individual screw piles. This value includes the total of all live and dead

loads. If multiple helixes are utilized for individual screw piles, vertical spacing of the helixes

should be at least 5 helix diameters. The bearing depth of the screw piles should be at least 4.6m

below the ground surface. Where multiple helixes are utilized, the upper most helix must be

situated at least I.8m below the ground surface. Lateral spacing between screw piles should be

no less than 4 helix diameters. Pile groupings have not been considered. It is recommended that

torque values measured during the installation process not be used as an estimate of the

geotechnical capacity of the pile. Individual screw piles are not recommended for supporting

laterally loaded structures.
