Alabama State University Life Sciences Building
Status: Completed 2008
GMC provided a preliminary geotechnical evaluation of the site of the proposed new Life Sciences Building. The team evaluated the subsurface conditions on the site in order to develop preliminary recommendations for foundation design and site preparation. The building is a concrete framed structure with the ground floor being below grade and four levels above grade. The ground floor elevation is about 10 feet below the existing grade. GMC also provided Construction Materials Testing Services and served as the Special Inspector. Testing services included foundation and subgrade evaluation, concrete sampling and testing, reinforcing steel observation, and masonry block observation and testing.
