Energy Tower II & IV
Houston, Texas

GES provided Construction Materials Testing services for these 18-story high rise office buildings.

Each building foundation included an 1,800 CY mat with additional isolated spread footings totaling 1,900 CY and was constructed with cast in place, mild steel reinforced concrete decks and columns. Each building included a 7-level, precast design parking garage with a subterranean stormwater detention vault and adjoining paving areas.

GES’ testing and inspection scope during construction included cast in place concrete, conventional concrete reinforcing, masonry, and structural steel inspections. As an extension of our work on Energy Tower IV, GES was contracted to monitor improvements made to the Embassy Suites hotel within the office park. Inspection items included drilled piers, concrete testing and structural steel inspections.
