Sitting next to Lindley Hall, the multidisciplinary facility brings together faculty, students and researchers from geology and engineering doing energy and environment research. Together, they will tackle ongoing and emerging issues in oil and gas exploration, water quality and availability, geothermal energy, and more. SK Design provided site layout, site design, ADA access, grading and utility plans for this project. We assisted the contractor in determining the shoring limits and access during construction. We also coordinated all utility reroutes and disruptions. The steep topography of the site required detailed grading and utility plans to maintain access and utilities during construction. This was a very challenging site that requited extensive retaining walls. SK Design provided detailed plans for the horizontal and vertical geometry of the walls.
