Meena Viswanath, P.E.,(Maryland) and Christopher Hunt, Ph.D., P.E., G.E., (California) coauthored "Waste Not, Want Not: Commercial Redevelopment of a Former Landfill Site" that was published in the October/November 2022 issue of GEOSTRATA.
The article describes a brownfields redevelopment project over a capped landfill adjacent to the San Francisco Bay, approximately 3 miles north of the San Francisco Airport. It focuses on the geotechnical, geoenvironmental, regulatory, and project management aspects of this complex redevelopment over a thick subsurface profile of municipal solid waste and soft clay; the project culminated in the construction of a life sciences campus with 616,000 square feet of office and laboratory space.
