Redwood Road Slide

Redwood Road Slide

John’s investigations concluded that the cracking in our house was being caused by an offsite landslide. He supported us through years of legal wrangling until the case was settled. His deep drain design for stabilizing the hillside was installed providing much-needed assurance for the stability of our home. John has been a highly professional, practical and responsive leader of our project team throughout the process. We are very happy with the result and recommend The Sutton Group to you.

Redwood Road Landslide Completed ProjectThe Sutton Group provided geotechnical investigations, slope stability analyses, hillside and residence distress monitoring, and design of an offsite slope drainage system for a downslope property owner whose house continued to crack following the repair of an upslope landslide.  The slide destroyed three houses, but following its “repair,” continuing slope movement wracked our client’s residence.  John’s detailed investigation and analysis concluded on the cause of the damage.  Litigation followed and instrumentation installed by a third-party geotechnical firm confirmed John’s conclusion.  The case settlement included installation of the deep hillside drainage system that John conceived and designed.  The system has been in operation since January 2013.
