Bentivar Residence

Underhill provided geotechnical engineering services during construction for additions to this Albemarle County residence.  Services included evaluation of soil subgrades and drainage recommendations for the new swimming pool, and a subsurface exploration and recommendations for support of a new heavily loaded column in the residence's basement.  Underhill's analysis allowed support of the column on a high capacity footing, thereby avoiding a conflict with the existing stairs, reducing the overall costs of modifications.
