Fox Tower

Fox Tower
Portland, Oregon

Fox Tower is located on the block bordered by SW Broadway and Park avenues and SW Yamhill and Taylor streets. The structure has 28 levels above grade and four below-grade parking levels. The building footprint occupies the entire block and extends to the property lines. The excavation required to construct the basement levels reached a maximum depth of 65 ft. A shoring/bracing system was necessary to support the excavation. GRI performed a detailed geotechnical investigation to evaluate subsurface materials and conditions at the site and developed recommendations for floor and foundation support; shoring and shoring performance provisions; embedded wall design; and subdrainage. The geotechnical investigation for this project included a site-specific seismic hazard study. GRI personnel provided on-site observation services and consultation during construction of the shoring and foundation system.
