Irvine Ice Foundation
- Geotechnical Testing
This project was financially supported by the Samueli Foundation and Anaheim Ducks Foundation with zero taxpayer dollars.
The Leighton Solution.
Leighton provided a geotechnical exploration and report, and observation and testing during grading. Our engineers and geologists were made available to the project team as the design evolved, addressing changes in soil conditions, and testing and approving import fill.
The site had previously been used for agricultural and military buildings, so the clayey content required overexcavation to address expansive potential.
