Pleasant Hill, CA (PRWEB) March 23, 2005 -- Pacific Housing Systems today announced the completion of its portion of a project in Walnut Creek, CA (about 25 miles east of SF), where its Winslow Geo Anchor was used for the foundation of a 70-foot bridge (H20-44 loading).

The span is now being built, and will cross a good size stream, enabling the development of two prime hillside lots that were previously restricted due to the simple inability of transporting materials from one side to the other. 14 anchors were used in the foundation - seven on each side - instead of 20 piers initially architected. The structure will easily meet the 37-ton load (enough to support a county fire engine) requirement, as "each" anchor has been tested at 50 tons capability.

Rick Kolby, principal of the group developing the project, Tice Valley Partners, said, “In addition to the nearly 50% we saved in materials and labor, the Winslow Geo Anchor had no impact on the stream itself. It was easily installed, is environmentally friendly and extremely structurally sound -- factors made the code and review process easy. In essence, we were able to provide a much better look and feel to the entire area, and that will be a huge benefit as the years go by and future households enjoy the residences.”
