This project involved the construction of a $40 million, 152,000sf athletic facility on the Roanoke College campus. The new facility was located over the footprint of the existing Bowman Hall and parking lot, which were razed as a part of this project. The new facility consisted of an office/locker room component, an arena, and a field house.
Following the design phase which saw Froehling & Robertson provide subsurface investigations and foundation recommendation, F&R’s professionals segued into providing construction materials testing and special inspections during the construction phase.
Services provided during this phase included the inspection and testing of materials as varied as:
- Compacted fill and earth retaining structures.
- Shallow foundations.
- Cast-in-place concrete.
