Brigham Young University
RB&G has provided geotechnical services for over 200 buildings on campus. Examples of various studies and testing include the Tanner Building Parking Structure, Marriott Center Renovation, and Eyring Science Center.
LAVELL EDWARDS STADIUM
In 2018 RB&G completed a geotechnical investigation with seismic considerations for another stadium expansion on the Brigham Young University campus which included using micropiles up to 55 feet in depth. The company has been involved with four expansions and modifications to the stadium since 1980.
HERITAGE HOUSING (Phases 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5)
Student housing structures were all rebuilt on the east side of campus. RB&G has performed geotechnical investigations for multiple 4-level masonry buildings since 2009. Phase 5 of the project was completed in 2020.
LIFE SCIENCES BUILDING
The 5-level building is situated on a hillside at the edge of campus and provides 265,000 square feet of teaching and research space, along with a three-level parking structure. Ground improvement was conducted to mitigate the potential for large liquefaction-induced settlements during the design seismic event. Spread footings were the primary foundation type, taking advantage of the increased bearing capacity provided by the ground improvement (vibro-replacement stone columns).
HARRIS FINE ARTS CENTER EAST MUSIC BUILDING
A new multi-level building is planned on the southeast section of campus for musical instruction and performances. RB&G completed geotechnical investigations in 2017 and 2018 for the proposed sites.
