WSU North Puget Sound Campus at Everett
Washington State University
Hart Crowser provided geotechnical and environmental services to support development of the four-story, 95,000-square-foot building to house WSU North Puget Sound at Everett and the Everett University Center. Our geotechnical investigation and design report included optimized shallow footing and mat foundation recommendations to take advantage of the high bearing capacity offered by the deeper glacial till soil.
During construction, Hart Crowser provided WSU with geotechnical special inspections and strategic environmental support related to Washington State Department of Ecology requirements, including soil sampling, analysis, and environmental cleanup oversight during development. We provided a summary of the soil characterization analytical results, remedial actions, and verification analytical results in order to facilitate Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
