Earth Slide Investigation
A large landslide occurred in the hills of Everett that caused massive damage to several houses along the top of a steep hill. We were called in to assess the structural integrity of a house that was right next to the slide area. We worked alongside a geotechnical engineer who was retained to determine the cause of the earth slide. The head scarp of the slide was located within 10’ of the back corner of the house. At the time of our site visit, the house had not suffered structural damage. However any further movement of the unstable hillside would put the house at risk of damage.
