The College Ridge faculty housing residential development consists of two multifamily structures on an approximately 2-acre hillside property with associated streets, underground utilities, retaining walls, and bioretention areas. The geotechnical evaluation involved a comprehensive field exploration and detailed analyses to provide hillside grading, foundation, retaining wall, and other development design and construction recommendations. Project challenges included large areas varying soil/rock conditions, high ground motions, large civil cuts/fills, unique bioretention basin design, and retaining wall height constraints.
In addition to geotechnical engineering, ENGEO provided the following services for the project:
The public project, located on a parcel east of Skyline College, is being constructed concurrently with a neighboring private residential development. The College Ridge project will provide affordable housing for faculty of San Mateo County Community College District
