Project Case Study

PVAMU Soccer Complex

Gessner Engineering provided the geotechnical report with recommendations addressing site and subgrade preparation, foundation recommendations, and pavement recommendations for the track and field area. Subsurface conditions were evaluated by drilling 2 test bore holes to a depth of 20 feet and 2 test bore holes to a depth of 5 feet within the limits of the proposed complex. Given the scale and use of the facility, Gessner Engineering recommended a stiffened slab-on-grade foundation system to support the proposed bleacher structure on the expansive soil conditions located at this site. Recommendations for the design of shallow spread footings to support the proposed bleachers were also provided as an alternative solution.
