UNC Charlotte Football Stadium
S&ME provided geotechnical engineering design services for the UNC Charlotte Football Stadium. Challenging subsurface conditions included shallow weathered rock along the western concourse and uncontrolled fill in the eastern concourse. Additionally, the new practice facilities are adjacent to drainage features and over existing low-lying areas. Those conditions, coupled with challenging design elements such as steep fill slopes, basement walls lacking internal framed bracing, and deep excavations for the field demanded collaboration between S&ME, the rest of the design team, and the construction manager. S&ME also provided construction materials testing services and Special Inspections for the project.
