Rockridge Geotechnical (RG) prepared the project geotechnical report and performed construction observation services for the new office tower. Geotechnical challenges for the design and construction of the building included deep excavation and dewatering in an urban setting and providing adequate support for large column loads under both static and seismic conditions. Adobe hopes to move into the tower in early 2023.
