List of some of the large and complex projects that are completed by PGE in the recent and in the past years in the Puget Sound area are given below.  Also, list of some of the large and complex projects that were completed by Mr. Santanu Mowar while he was in other geotechnical firms prior to PGE are also provided below.  The special geotechnical issues that were dealt in these projects are emphasized here to provide an outline of PGE’s experiences, and technical capabilities and expertise.

Ridge at Southwood Development, Utility Line Installations in the Development and in 22nd Avenue East, Puyallup:  Performed in-depth geotechnical study that included extensive soils explorations and laboratory tests, foundation recommendations, mass grading recommendations, pavement design, retaining wall design, seismic evaluation and liquefaction analysis, lateral spreading evaluation of steep slopes, in-depth numerical slope stability analyses, and performed field percolation tests. Provided full geotechnical inspection and testing services during the various phases of constructions of the project. Also, performed backfilling inspection and testing services for a total of approximately 5,000 LF and 22 feet deep utility trenches.  Generated daily field reports, attended periodic construction meetings, and submitted final letters to the owner and the regulatory bodies.

Mountain Highway Commercial Site, Puyallup: Performed in-depth geotechnical study that included extensive soils explorations and laboratory tests, foundation recommendations, mass grading recommendations, pavement design, retaining wall design, seismic evaluation, and field percolation tests.  Provided full geotechnical inspection and testing services during the various phases of constructions of the project.  Generated daily field reports, attended periodic construction meetings, and submitted final letters to the owner and the regulatory bodies.

Henderson Ridge and Tumwater Highland Developments, Olympia and Lacey:Performed full scale geotechnical study, excavated more than 20 test holes, performed laboratory tests, performed seismic evaluation, liquefaction analysis, and lateral spreading evaluation of the slope, in-depth numerical slope stability analyses, and designed long and high MSE Mesa Block Walls, e.g., 400-feet long and 22-feet high wall at Henderson Ridge. Performed field percolation tests and provided engineering for installing underground infiltration gallery under the slope areas of the site. Provided full inspection and testing services during the construction phases of the project. Generated daily field reports, attended periodic construction meetings, and submitted final letters to regulatory bodies.

Other Large Subdivisions in King, Pierce, Snohomish, Thurston, & Kitsap County: Performed extensive geotechnical studies and special inspections in conformances with the requirements of the local County and City Land Development Ordinances.  During these studies, mass grading, slope stability, steep slope stabilization with Geogrid reinforcement, MSE Keystone and Mesa Block Walls, reinforced and w/out reinforced rockery walls, reinforced concrete retaining walls, detention vaults, and infiltration facilities were designed and inspected on day-to day basis during their constructions and installations. Generated daily field reports, attended periodic construction meetings, and submitted final letters to regulatory bodies.
