Laney Field & Stadium
As the project manager, Darius directed geotechnical, geologic hazard, and limited environmental investigation for renovation of the existing running track and football fields, as well as construction of a new press box, bathrooms, and bleachers at the Peralta Community College District, Laney and Alameda Colleges.
Port of Oakland
As the project manager and pavement specialist, Darius has directed extensive geotechnical and pavement investigations for the Port’s Outer Harbor and International Container Terminals. The projects included reclamation and expansion of the facilities involving challenge of large consolidation settlement, liquefaction potential, as well as pavement design for heavy wheel loads of RTGs and Top Picks and other heavy load container carriers.
Since 2011, we have been constantly involved in a number of projects at the District, including Recycled Water Facility, Reclamation Parking Lot and Miscellaneous Site Improvements, and Secondary Treatment Upgrades. For the above projects we performed extensive geotechnical and geologic hazard investigations and during the construction phase of the Recycled Water Facility, provide construction support and performed foundation observation. In addition, we are the structural engineer for the proposed new 3-story steel frame administration building.
101 & 85 Interchange
As the project manager, Darius directed geotechnical, geologic hazard, and environmental investigations for Caltrans Route 101/85 South Interchange project. The project consisted of widening Coyote Creek Bridge at Route 101, constructing a new bridge over Coyote Creek for HOV lanes, constructing a southbound connector separation structure, widening Bernal road undercrossing at Route 101 and 85, constructing a connector and overhead structure, widening median and outside lanes on Route 101 and 85, constructing approach embankments, widening approach embankment, improving and upgrading the existing on-ramps and off-ramps, constructing retaining walls, and replacing an existing soundwall. The project includes design for rigid as well as flexible pavements for the new roadways and widening sections.
237 & 880 Interchange
As the project manager, Darius directed geotechnical, geologic hazard, and environmental investigations for this Caltrans improvement project. The project consisted of a new direct connector structure, a braided on-ramp structure, approach embankments and roadways for the above structures, retaining walls to support approach embankments where required, southbound 880 off-ramp to westbound Tasman Drive, and widening the outside lane of southbound 880. The project includes design for flexible pavements for the new roadways and widening sections.
