Sierra College Tahoe/Truckee Campus

The Truckee campus project involved developing portions of a 70-acre, previously undeveloped property into a college campus consisting of lecture halls, classrooms, laboratories, learning resource centers, student service facilities, administrative offices, and housing. Appurtenant construction included underground utilities, drainage and infiltration systems, asphalt concrete paved parking areas, roadways, and a pedestrian bridge across Donner Creek. The 28,500-square-foot campus became the first community college in the state of California to achieve LEED Gold certification.

Holdrege & Kull (H&K) performed a geologic hazards study, geotechnical investigation, Phase I environmental site assessment, and provided geologic input on the environmental impact statement report for the Tahoe-Truckee campus site. In 2008, H&K provided geotechnical engineering recommendations for the installation of micropiles for the pedestrian bridge and oversaw their installation. H&K also performed construction and materials testing services during development of the first phase of construction at the Truckee campus.
