A Noteworthy Case Study of Residential Foundation Performance on Expansive Soils
From 2002 to 2005, forty-five single family homes were built as part of a residential development in Erie, Colorado. A number of the homes were subsequently affected by foundation and slab heave, which triggered many investigations and engineering studies. Beginning in 2007, a decision was made to repair all of the homes in the subdivision, at a cost in excess of the original value of the residences, using analyses, means, and methods not previously applied on such a scale. Lawsuits were filed by the insurance company for the builder/developer in an effort to recover the cost of those repairs. Ten years having elapsed since the case was settled, the CAGE Fall Seminar for 2019 will provide a detailed factual presentation of this interesting technical and legal case history.
