The stormwater retention system at the MassBiologics facility at the UMass Medical School comprises subsurface chambers constructed from modular, stackable thermoplastic units.  Following partial collapse of the chambers in 2006, SGH investigated the cause of failure and recommended remedial action.  We subsequently provided consulting services for redesigning and installing a replacement system.
