Topic: Geotechnical Considerations in Design and Construction of Tilt-Up Buildings and Parking Lots (1.0 PDH)

Presenter: David A. Eastwood, P.E., D.GE, DFE, CAPM, F.FPA, F.ASCE, PresidentGeotech Engineering and Testing (GET)


Many tilt-up buildings are being built in Texas for commercial use. The buildings are durable and cost effective. However, foundation and structural problems can occur if these buildings are not designed and constructed properly. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the geotechnical concerns with design and construction of these building in Texas. Some of the design issues have to do with shallow piers, improper floor slab soil preparation and compaction. Many of the parking lots are subject to heavy traffic truck loading. The presentation will address the proper design for the pavement subject to heavy traffic loading.


Mr. Eastwood has practiced consulting engineering for about 43 years, serving in key technical project management and administrative roles. His specialties are in geotechnical, environmental, materials and geoforensic engineering. Mr. Eastwood’s experience in these functions includes a wide range of project types, ranging from public infrastructure, public works, municipal work, industrial facilities, commercial developments to waste disposal facilities, power plants, dams, marine terminals and underground storage tank contamination studies.

Mr. Eastwood conducts training in geotechnical, environmental, materials, and forensic engineering for the City of Houston (COH), Harris County Engineering Department (HCEC), City of Sugar Land, American Institute of Architects (AIA), Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), American Public Works Association (APWA) and Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA).
