Newhall Ranch Development, County of Los Angeles

This firm has been the primary geologic and geotechnical consultant for the 12,000-acre Newhall Ranch Development in northern Los Angeles County since 1994.  The project includes over 17,000 dwelling units as well as extensive commercial development.  This firm provided geologic reports as part of the review and approval process for the Specific Plan and assisted in the Value Engineering process during development of the design concepts.  We have conducted extensive explorations and prepared reports addressing tentative map designs that have resulted in geologic and geotechnical approval by the County of Los Angeles of large portions of the site, including VTT 53108 (Landmark Village) and VTT 61105 (Mission Village).  We have also conducted investigations and completed reports for the associated Water Reclamation Plant and Utility Corridor.


Single Lot Custom Residence, County of Los Angeles

AESEGI provided the observation and testing services during the construction of a custom residence which included a subterranean basement and construction of a swimming pool.  The foundation for this structure was founded in the bedrock using a combination of spread footing and pile system.  The basement retaining walls were backfilled per the approved plans and specifications. 






Rice Ranch Residential Development, Santa Barbara County

AESEGI provided geologic/geotechnical services including site characterization utilizing existing data from others and updated  with our own supplemental exploration, laboratory testing and analyses for the residential Tentative Tract consisting of 542 buildable Lots including parks, soccer fields, future school site and associated infrastructure.  In addition to evaluating the Tentative Tract Map, our services were used to assist the project team in preparation of the Environmental Impact Report and the project Specific Plan which included the evaluation of the potential for liquefaction during future earthquakes, determination of appropriate  for removal depths  to mitigate potential distress from hydroconsolidation, soil compressibility, liquefaction and seismic settlements.  The stability of the existing and proposed slopes, seismicity considerations, and the potential for expansive and corrosive soils were also addressed.

Single Lot Custom Residence, City of Santa Clarita,

AESEGI provided the geologic and geotechnical investigation services as well as observation and testing services during the construction of a custom residence.  Alluvial deposits beneath the proposed building footprint were removed and recompacted In order to mitigate adverse settlement considerations the building footprint was over-excavated The foundation for this structure was founded in compacted fill  using a conventional spread footings. 

Runkle Ranch Residential Development, City of Simi Valley

AESEGI performed engineering geologic and geotechnical engineering services including feasibility evaluations, value engineering, and design studies for the Tentative Tract Map, and assisted the project Team in preparation of the Environmental Impact Report and the project Specific Plan.  Analyses included evaluation of potential fault hazards, landslides slope stability, and delineation of existing aggregate mine tailings for preliminary grading removal estimates.  By detailed analysis of the geologic and geotechnical conditions and a rational approach to the site challenges, AESEGI obtained gained Geologic and Geotechnical approval of the Tentative Tract Map by the City of Simi Valley Public Works Department in a time efficient manner in keeping with the client's schedule.

COMMERCIAL

Golden Valley Ranch/Plaza at Golden Valley Development, City of Santa Clarita


Golden Valley Ranch/Plaza at Golden Valley posed unique challenges to development owing to complex geologic and geotechnical conditions and the proximity of the 14 freeway.  Using careful analysis of the geologic and geotechnical conditions combined with a rational approach to address the site constraints, AESEGI efficiently helped the design team solve a number of challenges including potential deep-seated landslides, faulting, highly expansive and corrosive  soils, material transitions beneath the proposed structures, slope stability, and seismic requirements.  AESEGI provided services from the feasibility stage through grading construction.

Entrada Rough Grading and Office Building Construction, County of Los Angeles

AESEGI performed geologic and geotechnical investigations, for the Tentative Tract Map and Grading Plans and provided construction monitoring services for the project Rough Grading and for the construction of a four-story office building.  Our evaluations covered determination of appropriate removal depth recommendations to mitigate potential distress from hydroconsolidation, soil compressibility, liquefaction and seismic settlements to the current state of the practice, as well as slope stability analyses, seismicity considerations, and potential for expansive and corrosive soils.






Gateway 5 Commercial and Industrial Development with Soil Cement Bank Protection, County of Los Angeles

AESEGI was retained to perform grading observation and testing services for the Gateway 5 Development located along the margin of Castaic Creek.  During the grading construction for the soil cement bank protection laboratory testing of the aggregate stockpile allowed revision of the soil cement design mix resulting in a considerable cost savings for the client.  A rigorous quality control program was employed during construction of the soil cement bank protection to ensure minimum plan specifications for compressive strength and durability were achieved.  Field observation and testing services were performed by our qualified soil technicians.  Geotechnical testing of on-site aggregate material and fresh soil cement was performed to assess alternate mix designs.  Mix designs were revised as needed during construction to minimize the cement quantities and control waste factors.  Results of Unconfined Compression tests (3-day, 7-day and 28-day) and Durability tests indicated that the soil-cement bank protection was constructed completely per the plan specifications.
