Project Description:
When completed, this facility, built entirely underground, will provide much needed research space at Harvard University. A campus quadrangle with a volleyball court will occupy the ground surface. Slurry wall and LBE construction allowed this work to take place with vital college facilities in operation on all four sides of the site, including an Egyptian antiquities museum, which imposed very strict movement and vibration criteria during construction. East Coast Slurry Company was able to complete the job without causing any problem for the surrounding facilities.
