Richardson Environmental Center
Situation: The Community Services Environmental Division had partnered up with outside
agencies to provide Richardson residents with education and information
for an environmentally friendly community. The Richardson Environmental
Center is a nature preserve that is used to educate local area schools.
They wanted to put in a wooden observation deck that extended over the
edge of the Center’s pond.
Solution: The deck is elevated 12-feet above the bottom of the pond. Ram Jack of
Texas was contracted to install helical piles and tieback anchors to support
and secure the deck.
