The Leighton Solution.
Leighton performed a fault evaluation study, re-excavating for review with other consultants and City of San Diego Geologists to verify the findings of our original report – allowing the project to proceed on schedule.
We also provided observation and testing services of the tie-back installation and shoring installation, testing of backfill soils, foundation observations, and geologic mapping of the excavation.
With the site having been a commercial cab facility, significant hazardous materials were found. Leighton provided the oversight during the remedial excavation of 14,600 tons of lead-impacted soil, one abandoned cistern, and several burn ash pits from the site. The remedial excavation was conducted in accordance with a site-specific Property Mitigation Plan (PMP), which was reviewed and approved by the SD-DEH. Confirmation samples were collected to confirm the effective removal of impacted soil to a site cleanup level established in the PMP. Based on the excavation and results of analytical testing, Leighton issued a closure report to the SD-DEH and attained approval for the construction of Market Street Village.
