Schooner Landing Stabilization for Schooner Landing Resort
Schooner Landing Resort in Newport, Oregon is situated on the active Schooner Creek Landslide. Past problems from ground movements have required structurally separating and re-constructing foundations on two of the resort buildings. PBS Engineering + Environmental and TBH & Associates merged two standard technologies to solve the problem of stabilizing landslides in the difficult coastal environment. Horizontal drain installation methods were optimized by adopting drill methods that result in high strength, precisely-placed drain casings that are effective and easily maintainable.
