Gymnasium Seismic Replacement

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Gymnasium Seismic Replacement project at San Bernardino Valley College will replace and provide new space and technology for the athletic departments that use this facility.

CHJ’S ROLE

CHJ conducted the initial geotechnical investigation and is currently providing grading observation, compaction testing as well as the materials testing for the seismic replacement of the gymnasium.  Engineering challenges include the presence of loose settlement prone soils and soils with a significant liquefaction potential.  Our characterization of the underlying soils obtained through exploratory borings and cone penetration soundings provided the details necessary for site specific remedial recommendations to deal with the challenges.
