Abstract

A combination of innovative tunnel engineering concepts and ground improvement technologies are described as applied to an IBM facility in Vermont, with emphasis on the geotechnical aspects of the construction. By this approach, emergency access and egress tunnels were built through difficult soils beneath the slab on grade of a vibration sensitive manufacturing building, with minimal disruption to daily operations.
