The Challenges of Hillside Construction

The numerous hills, slopes, valley sides, and palisades in Los Angeles once placed restrictions on where people could build. But modern engineering has conquered the problem and permitted homes and businesses to take root on even very steep slopes and make use of this valuable real estate. There are many challenges to hillside construction, however, and only professional builders and engineers can take on the task of making sure that a home has the secure foundation necessary for a hillside perch.

There is no single set of techniques used for all hillside construction. Experienced contractors such as ours will apply the best techniques for each situation. A project will start with extensive planning and designs, then proceed with excavation, engineering the soil for stabilization, and building retaining walls and caissons (deep concrete and steel foundations). Special focus is placed on earthquake–proofing the structure. Our designers will work with you every step of the way through this process so that your home/building is both safe and cost–effective. No doubt, this is difficult work—but we have the experience, tools, and dedication to see that you receive the final result you need.
