Concrete Durability Assessment Report
The US Department of State, Office of Overseas Building Operations (OBO) has specified a service life of 100 years for all buildings on United States Embassy campuses being constructed. This long-term service life requires special considerations when the ground and coastal exposure conditions challenge the reinforced concrete integrity. The ground water and soil contamination / conditions were very severe and require special considerations.
The severe soil and groundwater conditions require special service life engineering services. TCG used STADIUM software to analysis the concrete mixture and geotechnical testing results to design a long-term, 100-year, service life. TCG worked with the design-build team and local materials to optimize solutions.

We needed a cost-effective durability design with very short notice. TCG jumped in and met our expectations.
