North Carolina State University is embarking upon a major $154 million program to update and drastically expand its School of Engineering on the University’s Centennial Campus. Estimated to be completed in 2020, the Engineering Building Oval is a proposed 227,000 GSF Building (136,000 ASF) which will house the Departments of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering as well as the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering and other administrative offices, over 100 classrooms and laboratories.

F&R is proud to be on the team to provide geotechnical engineering, construction materials testing and special inspections services. F&R’s drilling crews performed a subsurface exploration and field testing of soils for analysis in our laboratory in support of a full evaluation by geotechnical staff. Our geotechnical engineers recommended foundation, site preparation, and construction recommendations among other considerations.

Currently, F&R’s engineering professionals have returned to the site to conduct integrated materials testing and special inspections on earthwork, cast-in-place concrete, structural steel, masonry, and fireproofing.
