CalGeo October 2022 Regional Meeting!

The regional CalGeo chapter is hosting a talk by Mr. Jeremy Zorne, PE, GE on “All About the Dirt of the New SMUD Museum of Science and Curiosity (MOSAC)“. The talk will be held at the new SMUD Museum on Friday October 28, 2022!

See below for further information regarding the event:

MOSAC, on the banks of the Sacramento River, is an adaptive reuse of an abandoned power station building. Vacant for over half a century, the 30,000-square-foot former powerhouse building underwent a complete structural and historic rehabilitation.

The project site presented many geotechnical challenges including soft, compressible soil; seismic-induced liquefaction susceptible soil; and dynamic instability/lateral spreading potential. Geocon performed an extensive geotechnical evaluation of the site that used past geotechnical studies and new geotechnical exploration, in-situ testing, and laboratory testing. Geocon collaborated with the project team to develop cost-effective seismic hazard mitigation and foundation solutions for the project. Jeremy Zorne, PE, GE, was the project manager and geotechnical engineer for the project. Jeremy will provide an overview of the project and describe the geotechnical challenges and solutions that helped make the project a success.
