construction worker drillingBoring and Percolation Testing Drilling at Selected Campus Locations

September 6-20, 2019

On Fridays, September 6, 13, and 20 from 7 a.m.-3 p.m., there will be boring and percolation testing at several campus locations as part of a geotechnical survey. The purpose for this drilling is to identify the existing soil conditions within the surrounding areas and footprint of the proposed new building structure and stormwater improvements. 

Note: The work is scheduled within this timeframe to minimize disruption to classrooms, staff and departments operating in drilling and testing areas.

This construction activity is part of the college's Academic Complex 1 - Phase 1 project. Read the Construction Notification #1 [PDF].

This activity will impact the following campus buildings: 

  • Theater Arts
  • Foreign Language
  • Humanities
  • Campus Center
  • Emergency Services Training
  • Administration 1-2
  • Construction Project Team (CPT)
  • Bungalows 81-85
  • Math Science
  • Business Journalism
  • Engineering. 

As illustrated on Exhibit #1 diagram [JPG], the project will start in the northeast location near the CPT building and doing the locations around the CPT and Admin buildings then moving to the ones east of the Emergency Sciences training building. They should complete 5 to 6 borings on September 6, the remainder for the Academic Complex, the ADC and Theater Arts on September 13.  The CPTs will be done on September 20, and will start at the location northwest of the CPT then east of Admin 1 and 3 then east of the Emergency Sciences training and then finishing with 1 location north west of the Theater Arts Bldg. The shallow infiltration locations will be done starting the week of September 9, along with the infiltration testing around the Academic Complex and completed the week after.

The campus community should be aware that there will be construction noise, but the contractor will take all control measures to minimize construction noise and vibration during drilling hours.
