The first phase of Mission Bay housing, this project involved construction of two- to four-story residential building units at a site which was underlain by landfill materials and soft Bay Mud soils. The proposed construction consisted of 541 housing units.
AGS performed field exploration, laboratory testing, engineering analyses, and prepared a geotechnical report which presented the findings, conclusions, and recommendations of the study. Tasks performed as part of the study included characterization of engineering properties of the fill materials, a settlement estimate, and evaluation of static and seismic stability of existing fill slopes adjacent to a channel. Particular emphasis was made to assess the seismic performance of the slopes and to estimate lateral deformations during a significant earthquake.
