During the 2008 excavation for the new North Tower, the adjacent five-story, brick masonry building (Building 3) suddenly settled about 1.5 in.  This movement caused significant damage to Building 3, which was supported on shallow foundations.  SGH assessed the condition of Building 3, investigated the cause of movement, and developed remediation options allowing construction to proceed.
