Crofton Springs, Issaquah, Washington
The master-planned community of Crofton Springs is located in the Issaquah Highlands development, featuring three story row houses, three story cottages and two story carriage houses. We conducted a subsurface investigation, analyzed soil samples for moisture content, soil type and engineering properties, and prepared recommendations for subgrade stabilization, drainage, foundation support, backfill compaction and retaining wall parameters. GEO Group Northwest provided quality assurance, testing services and construction monitoring throughout the project. The photo is courtesy of the architects for the project, Weber + Thompson.
Merrill Gardens at Renton Centre, Renton, Washington
Our firm conducted a geotechnical engineering study for the planned five-story retirement center with a two-story parking garage. Based on the soil conditions encountered, we developed criteria for temporary excavation shoring, foundation support, drainage and pavement. We provided the owner foundation alternatives for dealing with the on-site loose soils and silts. Our firm performed construction monitoring and compaction testing for the project, and managed the cleanup of abandoned underground fuel storage tanks discovered on site during the installation of pipe piles.
