Development of brownfields, including former landfills, into commercial, industrial, or mixed-use properties is increasing. However, design and construction of such redevelopment projects is complex and must consider a variety of geotechnical, structural, environmental, and regulatory hurdles. Please join us for this presentation describing the design and construction challenges associated with the Sierra Point redevelopment site in the San Francisco Bay Area, which included construction of a biotech campus over a former municipal solid waste and construction debris landfill overlying up to 200 ft of soft compressible clays.
