Memorial East Hospital in Shiloh, Illinois was constructed to serve growing healthcare needs in St. Clair County in the St. Louis region. Before construction could begin, the site required extensive ground improvement, and Subsurface Constructors installed 1,345 vibro stone columns, allowing the soils to support a maximum bearing pressure of 5,500 pounds per square foot. The site consists of lean clay, clayey sand and very stiff clay.
