Terracon was retained by the University of Nebraska at Lincoln to perform geotechnical engineering services for the $21-million, 74,000 square-foot Ken Morrison Life Sciences Research Center on East Campus in Lincoln, Neb. The geotechnical exploration included general subsurface conditions encountered in the borings, the analysis and evaluation of test data, and recommendations regarding the design and construction of foundations and related site development. The geotechnical investigation indicated varying depths of existing fill underlain by lean to fat clay and glacial till soils. The building is supported on deep foundation.
Terracon opened its doors in Lincoln in 1991. Since then they have served the Lincoln area with geotechnical engineering, construction material evaluation and environmental assessment for construction and remediation projects. Terracon has performed subsurface investigations and in-situ testing, soil sampling, foundation and structural consulting and more.
