SCE provided testing and inspections on the CIA base electrical service station, including three generator pads and electrical station supply building. SCE performed testing in accordance with the IFC Submission Specifications provided by the USACE. The construction consisted of 57 caissons for the proposed buildings. The specifications required SCE to provide geotechnical confirmation of the soils a minimum of 10 feet lower than the bottom of each 57 caisson. SCE provided an in-house geologist to monitor the geotechnical borings before the caisson were drilled to determine the soils were in accordance with specifications and the geotechnical report. After exploration was completed, caissons were drilled. Inspections of the caissons diameters depths and reinforcement steel were performed by our geologist and reinforced concrete inspector. Concrete samples were taken by our ACI Grade 1 technicians during all concrete pours in accordance with the specifications.
SCE provided testing and inspections on the slabs, walls and structural steel for each of the buildings and provided compaction testing and concrete testing for the land development of the area including a large duct bank for the required underground utilities required for this project. SCE also provided compaction testing during the backfill of excavated trenches. In accordance with the specifications, SCE performed nuclear gauge compaction testing in accordance with ASTM D-2950. SCE also performed sand cone density tests ASTM D1556 after every ten nuclear gauge tests for compaction verification in accordance with the specifications. All soil and concrete samples were tested in our in-house laboratory. Daily field results were provided to our client and reviewed field dailies and certifications were provide on a weekly basis to our client for review and submission. SCE organized with Strata Infrastructure the required drilling company to complete the required steps in accordance with the specifications. SCE provided all the required information of our inspectors, geologists, and technicians to receive the required badges to gain access to the base.
