Projects

VA - Fisher House

This project consisted of the site preparation for the proposed Fisher House residence to be constructed on the VAPHS Oakland campus.  The scope of work included the design and construction of a substantial MSE retaining wall on a challenging slope condition (including calculation of over-excavation and mine void stabilization solutions), site demolition, relocation of sanitary and storm sewers (including separation of the sanitary and storm sewers), installation of electrical ducts and concrete paving repair.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Construction of the retaining wall took place within challenging conditions on a slope area overlooking the University of Pittsburgh athletic fields.

The geotechnical design of the project required coordination of multiple disciplines, including: geotechnical engineering, mine stabilization/grouting expertise, structural engineering and plumbing engineering expertise.  RBVetCo coordinated all disciplines throughout the design process and worked with the VA to achieve final approval.

This project demonstrates our ability to manage a challenging design/build project, including management of multiple subcontractors and resolution of subcontractor conflicts.
