Placer County Community Development Resource Center – Auburn, CA

Holdrege & Kull provided geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, special inspection, and materials testing services for the Placer County Department of Facility Services during construction of this 97,400 s.f. facility. Before construction, environmental work consisted of characterization and remediation of contaminated soil. During construction, the two-story, structural steel building required nearly continuous special inspection and testing during certain phases. Phase II included the addition of 120 parking spaces, curbs, gutters, signage, lighting, and landscaping to support final occupancy of the CDRC. H&K’s services on the project included review of plans and specifications for testing requirements; coordination with contractor to efficiently complete necessary testing; observation and testing of engineered fill; inspection and testing of foundation reinforcing steel, including bend and yield tests; inspection and testing of structural steel, visual and nondestructive; and inspection and testing of concrete, including slump, air content, strength, unit weight, and water/cement ratios. In addition, H&K provided a running punch list of action items and prepared electronic field reports daily for distribution.
