DESCRIPTION: The Walnut Creek MUE apartment complex includes 80 dwelling units with a mix of 3-story townhouses and apartment buildings and an associated paved parking lot.
SERVICES: Foundation Engineering completed the geotechnical investigation for the project. Our work included digging 19 test pits across the site to evaluate the subsurface conditions and providing recommendations for site grading, foundation design and pavements. Foundation Engineering also provided on-site consultation during the earthwork and foundation preparation. Portions of the site were underlain by undocumented fill and high plasticity clay. Therefore, identifying the limits of these materials and providing mitigation was a key issue for the site development.
