  Terracon provided geotechnical engineering and materials testing and inspection services for all phases of the project. Terracon had performed several subsurface explorations in the vicinity of the project site and the results of those explorations were considered during the development of the scope for the project. We reviewed our  internal data from our previous projects at the K-State complex: Exploration for stadium football lights, press box, stadium concessions and restrooms, east side stadium expansion, east side restroom additions, and the new west side stadium facility. In 2016, Terracon performed work with the University on the northeast connector addition to the facility.
