Troy University Trojan Arena
GMC provided the geotechnical services during the construction of a new 5,800 seat arena that is the home for Troy University’s basketball, track and volleyball programs. The arena provides state of the art facilities for the NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s basketball programs, as well as graduation and special events and became a cornerstone of the Troy athletic complex situated between the football stadium and the track and field complex. The geotechnical services package included Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) and Standard Penetration Testing (SPT) used to evaluate the subsurface conditions. The foundations consisted of both spread footings and drilled shafts. Extensive settlement analysis was performed to evaluate the total and differential settlement potential.
