The Launch Equipment Test Facility Vehicle Motion Simulator 2 Project consisted of demolition of existing concrete pilings, site work modifications, installation of precast trenches and large concrete foundations, and a site wide electrical grounding system.

The project began with the removal and backfill of existing concrete encased poles to make way for the new VMS2 foundation. The VMS2 foundation consisted of a 60 x 70 x 3 high strength concrete slab, requiring a 550 yard concrete placement during off peak hours. A dewatering system was installed to control the ground water elevation and achieve compaction requirements. Customer supplied embeds were installed and secured prior to concrete placement, and surveyed as required.

Following the installation of the VMS-2 foundation was the installation of the customer supplied precast trench and lid systems. This trench system was approximately 150 feet long, and required each piece to be set at a custom elevation due to the irregularities in the fabricated pieces. The trench lids were also highly irregular and required modification prior to placement on the trench.

This project also included placement of two 12 x 55 x 5 concrete foundations for the proposed south tower at the LETF site. Dewatering was required to achieve compaction and place the 250 yards of concrete required to place the foundations. Embeds were installed and secured prior to concrete placement, and surveyed as required. Placement of all large foundations on this project required the use of a large concrete boom pump, coordination of third shift placement, and extensive surveying.

The remaining site work included installation of 4 spread footer pier foundations, placement and surveying of heavy duty anchor bolts, the supply and installation of additional precast trenches, installation of two electrical duct banks, preparation and installation of asphalt, and electrical grounding for all foundations and trenches.
