Acuterra

Acuterra encounters many challenging projects.  The photos on this page show an extensive hillside repair in La Jolla, California.  The hillside was slipping in the direction of the houses below.  The engineered solution required the excavation of a series of 10-14’ steel reinforced concrete piers with three corresponding walls.  The hillside was unstable and there was no access for heavy equipment, so most of the job was carefully excavated by hand.  It’s not unusual that many smaller hillside reconstruction projects are initially hand excavated to allow access for specialized drilling rigs and other construction.
