El Dorado Beach Improvement

South Lake Tahoe, CA | 2011

Helical Pile Beach Improvement

This $4.8 Million LEED Project included site rehabilitation and improvements of the existing city park along the south shore of Lake Tahoe.  Helical piles were installed for the foundation system and lateral bracing. Design loads ranged from 26 Kips up to 102 Kips, and were accommodated by the use of a combination of 3-1/2” and 5-1/2” pile shaft diameters. Project requirements included high standards for materials and building systems to promote sustainable building practices. The project is a showcase of collaboration, innovation, and sustainable building practices that will significantly improve erosion control and lake clarity.
