Construction on the project at Memorial Stadium, which included included new modern restrooms, a new premium section near the 50-yard line, accessible seating on multiple levels, wider aisles and concourses, new handrails, a new press box and upgrades to the technology used for broadcasts and streaming video, began in late 2014.
S.W.COLE’s work, which began in February 2015, included observation and/or special inspections of concrete, masonry, grout, soil compaction and materials, and subgrade preparation and backfill placement. Our construction materials testing services including testing of concrete for compressive strength, air temperature, air content and slump as well as anchor pull tests, rebar pull tests and soil gradation laboratory testing.
