For the past two years, F&R has provided construction materials testing and geotechnical engineering services for the development of Auburn Village (a 55+ Active Adult Living community). At completion, the subdivision will consist of 375 single-family homes, seven (7) stormwater ponds and thirty-five (35) mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls in addition to an Amenity Center featuring a clubhouse, swimming pool, and various sport courts.

F&R’s certified technicians are currently providing materials testing during the continued construction of the subdivision and our services have included the following elements: subgrade evaluation prior to fill placement; observation and testing of structural fill materials; observation and testing of utility backfill; observation of proofrolls for roadway soil subgrade and ABC stone; density testing of roadway ABC stone; quality assurance testing during construction of MSE walls; and bearing grade evaluation, rebar inspection, and concrete testing associated with the construction of the Amenity Center.

Prior to the construction of the Amenity Center, Lennar (formerly CalAtlantic Homes) contracted F&R to provide geotechnical engineering recommendations for foundations, retaining walls and site preparation.
