Project Description
Summit provided Geotechnical Engineering, Special Inspections and Construction Materials Testing for this three-story, 100,000-square foot, steel-framed building with a reinforced concrete retaining foundation wall which divides the upper and lower elevations of this 60-foot structure. The school building was designed to be a place of learning, support a thriving community and a showcase for the many cultural activities in a vibrant, historic neighborhood.
Summit provided the Geotechnical Engineer of Record, soils and construction materials sampling and laboratory testing, which included inspection of concrete testing, structural steel welding inspections of the steel-braced frames, structural masonry inspections of the cafeteria and auditorium framing walls and reinforced concrete inspections for the column and wall footings, foundation walls and lightweight concrete composite deck slabs.

Our team provided civil engineering services for the new Oxford Preparatory School Facility in Granville County, N.C. The school originally began with 68 students and has operated using modular buildings that have expanded each year with increased enrollment. Due to the increase, the construction of a 38,000-square foot building was necessary. It contains 20 classrooms that include three science labs, music room, and gymnasium with a 440-person seating capacity. Summit provided special use permitting, construction drawings, erosion control permitting, off-site sanitary sewer outfall and off-site roadway improvements. Summit also provided geotechnical, CMT and surveying services for this project.
