CHJ PROVIDED A GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATION
on this 180-acre lot which now houses the Stater Bros. Corporate Office and Distribution Center. CHJâ€™s goal was to provide a field investigation to determine field moisture content and dry density determinations, optimum moisture â€“ maximum density relationship, direct shear strength, sieve analysis, expansion index determination, and consolidation potential.
Following the completion of the field and laboratory investigations, a report was prepared discussing the geologic and engineering characteristics of the subsurface soils, with respect to the planned development. The report addressed geologic concerns and hazards, including faulting and seismicity. The report also included recommendations for site preparation and grading, foundation and retaining wall design, support of concrete slabs-on-grade, as well as recommendations to mitigate any unusual soil conditions encountered.
