The Feather River Hospital Rural Health Clinic in Paradise, California, was sadly lost in the 2018 Camp Fire.
NV5 prepared the geotechnical engineering evaluation and performed quality assurance and special inspection during site work and erection of the Feather River Hospital Rural Health Clinic in Paradise, California. The project entailed the development of a new three-story, 41,000 SF medical office building and health clinic. The building consists of steel frame and steel beams, concrete stemwall basement, concrete slab on grade ground floor and raised concrete floors, continuous and isolated shallow spread foundations, retaining walls, exterior concrete sidewalks and truck ramp loading dock driveway, asphalt concrete (AC) paved roadways and parking lots, and landscaped areas.
NV5 provided the following periodic observation and testing services: field density testing of native soil subgrades, engineered fill, trench backfill, pavement subgrades, and aggregate base; laboratory testing of soil samples for classification and maximum dry density evaluations (compaction curves); continuous special inspection and testing during casting of concrete for the foundation (at moment frame bolts) and slab-on-grade as required; special inspection of reinforced concrete including mix design review, batch plant inspection and sampling and testing fresh concrete; slump, air content, unit weight for light weight concrete and temperature measurements; structural steel special inspection; and special inspection and testing of spray-applied fireproofing.
We also prepared daily field reports to document the following observations made during each of our site visits: weather conditions; earthwork contractor’s work activities, work progress, completed work products, equipment used, and personnel; and quality assurance compaction testing.
