Orinda Oaks


A landslide threat had halted construction on a single-family residential development in Orinda. SDG stepped in with the expertise to repair the landslide and finish the job. Orinda Oaks now encompasses twelve high-end, single-family homes in the Orinda Hills, a highly sought after area.


Translating policy.

Our team of experts and consultants found a solution to completing construction for the stalled development, and translated that finding into something our policy makers could understand and embrace.


Several builders decided to pass on Orinda Oaks in fear of a potential landslide on the property. We harnessed our expertise in soil engineering to seismically and geotechnically stabilize the soil, eliminating the hazard. As a result, SDG successfully laid a foundation for completing the development.

We harnessed our expertise in soil engineering to seismically and geotechnically stabilize the soil, eliminating the hazard.


SDG developed twelve sustainable residences in Orinda, named by Forbes Magazine as one of the most desirable neighborhoods in America. We are currently completing construction and the majority of homes are sold and closed.

We developed twelve homes in a challenging and yet idyllic area.
