Formerly the Lorton Prison, this historic structure has been restored to art galleries and studios and also hosts live performances. Due to the fact that the underground utility tunnels were aging and contaminated with asbestos, SGS filled all underground utility tunnels to the ceiling with approximately 2,500 cubic yards of grout.

The Woodrow Wilson Memorial Bridge spans the Potomac River between Alexandria, VA. and Oxon Hill, MD. SGS was originally hired by Potomac Crossing Consultants in 2004 during the replacement project. Once on site, several other companies hired SGS for the project in the ensuing years. Initially, SGS completed epoxy injections into cracks in the precast structures being manufactured on site using man lifts and barges. Later in the project, SGS injected voids around the anchor heads of the post-tension cables. Finally, SGS designed a camera and remote packer system to seal the leaking joints in the post-tension conduits that were placed in the foundation below the water table.
