Plaza in Diamond Bar
Diamond Bar, CA
Geotechnical Investigation, Geotechnical Observation and Testing Services
This retail shopping center located in the City of Diamond Bar had improvements to the existing shopping center. It included the demolition of three of the existing buildings and construction of a 38,000 square foot building, a one-story addition to an existing building and the construction of a retaining wall behind the plaza.
During the design phase Converse conducted a geotechnical investigation. This included the drilling of borings to depths of up to 50 feet and laboratory testing of soils samples. We prepared a report presenting our findings, conclusions and recommendations, including seismic and foundation design parameters, evaluation of secondary effects of earthquake and estimated settlement. During construction we provided observation and testing of grading operations, fill compaction, masonry, concrete and rebar.
