Expansion of Smithfield Foods in Sioux Falls, SD will consist of a 1-story structure with pre-cast concrete construction and will occupy an approximate footprint of 118,000 sq ft. The Geopier X1® system will provide foundation and floor slab support with an increased bearing capacity. The X1 system is being installed to reinforce up to 17 ft of undocumented existing fill and soft clay alluvium to support column loads of up to 1,300 kips, wall loads of up to 15 kips per lineal foot, and floor slab pressures of 250 pounds per sq ft. The use of the Geopier technology eliminated the need for costly over-excavation and replacement.
