For the R.O. Pickard Environmental Centre digester expansion program, the owner's engineer envisioned two structurally-identical, modified, egg-shaped digesters founded on drilled piers extending 80 ft to bedrock. The general contractor elected to build the digesters on a pile foundation. SGH provided structural engineering services for the project.
