BAUER Foundation Corp., the US subsidiary of BAUER Spezialtiefbau GmbH, has been commissioned by Komada LLC. with the execution of approximately 12,500 square feet (1,160 m²) cut–off secant pile wall and 19,000 square feet (1,765 m²) of grout curtain treatment at the left abutment of the Fort Carson, Teller Dam project.
The owner of Teller Dam is the Omaha district of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
BFC will operate as the Designated Specialist Subcontractor for the project.
The secant pile wall and grout curtain cut-off system total length is approximately 350 linear feet (107 m) with a maximum depth of 115 ft (35 m).
The Fort Carson Teller Dam is located on the Turkey Creek River south of Colorado Springs / Colorado. The intent of the cut-off wall is to intercept potential seepage pathways that could contribute to internal erosion and removal of dam material along the dam and abutment contact. The cut-off wall will consist of two sections, a secant piles wall through the left end of the dam, abutment contact and into the left abutment, and a connected grout wall to further extend the interception of seepage pathways.
