Project Case Study

Blue Bell Park Expansion


Gessner Engineering was responsible for all sampling, testing, and reporting for the renovation of Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park on the Texas A&M University Campus. Our staff monitored the installation of 128 augur cast piles under the new expanded concourse, and cast 126 sets cylinders and mortar cubes during the course of construction. Proof rolls, moisture density determinations, and nuclear density tests were performed under areas of new construction, and for the construction of new 13 foot high berm walls along the outfield of visitor and home sides. Field weld inspections were performed on light pole bases using ultrasonic testing to check the integrity of the welds. Technicians also kept track of multiple specifications for various phases of the project and were required to provide on-site pass/fail of tests based on project specifications.
