Tract A ofthe Villa Alegre Development
To prevent staining of concrete, the back of retaining walls should be waterproofed prior to backfilling. Weep holes should be constructed near the base ofexterior walls. Perimeter drains may be necessary around interior walls.
The recommendations presented in this report are based upon the assumption that site earthwork will be performed as recommended in this report and the attached Appendix. Presented below is a summary of the site earthwork recommendations. Detailed earthwork procedures are presented in the attached Appendix.
Prior to commencing earthwork the Contractor should obtain appropriate Proctor tests. Field density testing and evaluation of the suitability of the proposed materials performed prior to completion of the Proctor is "Preliminary" and may change based upon the results of the Proctor testing. Should the Contractor elect to proceed based upon "Preliminary" information, he does so at his own risk.
Clearing and Grubbing
Prior to placing structural fill, all borrow and fill areas should be stripped of vegetation and deleterious materials. All strippings should be hauled off-site or utilized in landscaped areas. V &A Project No.: 09-1-JOJ 11
