Alamance Community College Applied Technology Center

ESP provided survey, subsurface exploration, construction materials testing, and Special Inspections services for a new 55,000-square-foot, single-story classroom and laboratory building with associated parking lot, loading dock area, and infrastructure. The building is a steel-framed structure with shallow foundations, masonry walls, and a slab-on-grade floor system, which required floor flatness/levelness testing. ESP provided foundation design recommendations and retaining wall design criteria for planned site walls of up to 24 feet in height.

ESP also provided soil compaction and reinforced concrete testing on the 24-foot retaining wall adjacent to the building. Challenges included the presence of highly plastic clays.
