This was a landslide repair to a slope that undermined four houses and a swimming pool in Oceanside, CA. The site work included the installation of tie backs (56 anchors with 300 kip loads) and reinforced shotcrete (225 Cubic yards). The project also included slope re-grading (14,000 cubic yards), and the reconstruction of an existing retaining wall.
Groundforce just completed Tie Back installation for the Zip Line ride at the San Diego Safari Park. If you look closely at the photo you can see a Rhino doing whatever it is that Rhinos do.
A set of 60 foot long tie backs were installed through a grade beam system to provide additional load capacity for the ride.
Project Structural Engineering was provided by Taquino Engineering. Geotechnical Engineering and Materials testing was provided by Southern California Soil and Testing
Groundforce has completed construction of a Seawall for the City of San Diego in La Jolla. The Seawall was constructed to prevent bluff erosion and undermining of the new City Lifeguard Station being constructed at the site.
The project required use of limited access drilling equipment. The wall was constructed with a series of tie back anchors and sculpted Shotcrete to simulate the surrounding bluff materials. The project General Contractor was Stronghold Engineering. Geotechnical Engineering was provided by Southern California Soils and Testing. Structural Engineer of Record was BWE/Burkett and Wong.
