Notable Projects

Pinewood Studios Atlanta

Geotechnical Exploration, Materials Testing, and Special Inspections

Oasis Consulting Services (Oasis) performed geotechnical evaluations and assessments, construction materials testing and special inspections, and NPDES stormwater testing and inspection for Pinewood Studios, a movie/production studio development situated on a 700-acre site in Fayetteville, Georgia.

Completed phases of development include 17 sound stages that total approximately 340,000 sq. ft., with another approximate 400,000 sq. ft. of workshop, office, and production facilities. The sound stage construction is high bay concrete tilt up panel and structural steel. Most of the support facilities are pre-engineered metal buildings. Future phases of construction are planned to build out the development.

To date, Oasis has provided services for the design and construction, and has performed all of the subsurface exploration for the development. We assisted the owner with construction sequencing in order to mitigate potential issues with soft soils and settlement. Oasis also performed all of the materials testing and inspection services for the earthwork, site utilities, foundations, reinforced concrete, slabs-on-grade, and structural steel. In addition, storm water sampling, testing, and reporting were also conducted.

As a result of our efforts, the client was able to expedite the various projects being carried out during construction. In order to meet the aggressive construction schedule, Oasis worked with the client to develop creative solutions which facilitated management of the fast-track schedule.

Luckie Street Solar Project, New South Construction

Geotechnical Services

The “Luckie Street Solar Project,” owned by Atlanta magnate Ted Turner, is currently the largest solar project installed in downtown Atlanta. As a result of its revolutionary use of solar canopies as cover for parking lots, the project will generate nearly 200 kilowatt hours – enough to prevent an estimated 82 metric tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. Oasis Consulting Services is proud to have provided a number of geotechnical services, including subsurface exploration, SPT drilling, shallow and intermediate (drilled pier) foundation design, recommendation for bearing capacity, and pavement design for this innovative project.
