Camden Hillcrest

The 160,000 SF Camden Hillcrest apartment complex is located on an eight-acre site overlooking the Pacific Ocean and consists of three four-story buildings with 123 apartments, a lounge area, café, fitness center, and pool. Langan provided a subsurface investigation, laboratory testing, and evaluation and consulting in support of design for the buildings, site grading, and mechanically stabilized earth walls. During construction, we provided observation and testing of excavations, soil compaction, and additional geotechnical support for site changes. Project challenges included protecting the utility line from construction and building load surcharges, working adjacent to 100+-foot-tall slopes that had to remain untouched because of habitat areas, and the need for stormwater mitigation systems with no public system serving the property.
