Pacific Bell Park, San Francisco, California
Located adjacent to China Basin by the San Francisco Bay, an area reclaimed from mud flats, the site had very little structural capacity and required soil enhancement via stone columns, additional reinforcement of the existing concrete bulkhead, compaction grouting of existing voids, soil anchors as tiebacks, and a reinforced portwalk capable of tying the elements together and serving as the base for the outfield walls, seating bowl, and scoreboard structures. The structural frame of the ballpark is predominantly reinforced concrete resting on 2,200 concrete piles. A concrete mat surrounds the building, tying the building together and resisting lateral forces imposed by earthquakes. Municon conducted pre-construction documentation of the existing bulkhead from on the water and monitored ground modifications work with tiltmeters.



Richmond Transport Tunnel, San Francisco, California
New 10,200 foot long, 18-foot diameter storage tunnel and 6,000 linear feet of a large diameter sewage pipe located in the Richmond/Seacliff/Lobos Creek area of San Francisco.
