This expansion consists of the addition of four new multi-story buildings on the south end of campus adding a total of 380,000 square feet of space. The project was part of the larger Metropolitan Community College master plan. During the design phase, Thiele Geotech, Inc. performed preliminary and final geotechnical investigations and numerous environmental assessments. The environmental assessments included several Phase I Environmental Assessments on parcels acquired for the expansion, Phase II Environmental Assessments, Petroleum Release Tier 1 Risk Based Corrective Action, and supplemental environmental screening. Geotechnical recommendations were provided for site utilities, shallow and intermediate foundations, settlement, earthwork, earth retention structures, pavements, and floor slabs. During the construction phase, Thiele Geotech, Inc. observed site stripping, disposal of contaminated material, UST closure, proof rolling, settlement monitoring, intermediate foundations, reinforced concrete, structural steel placement, structural masonry, and welded and bolted connections. Materials testing was performed on soils, concrete, and grout throughout the project.
