Oxnard High School
Earth Systems companies personnel performed geotechnical evaluations of potential new sites for the relocation of Oxnard High School. Geotechnical considerations included liquefaction potential, high groundwater, and compressible on-site near-surface silts.
The new high school was constructed on a 50-acre site of former agricultural use. The complex comprises 11 one- and two-story buildings of wood-frame, steel moment-frame, and concrete tilt-up construction. Also included are a stadium, bleachers and an Olympic-sized swimming pool.
Our services related to the construction of the new school included:
