West Campus The Texas Children's Hospital West Campus project includes the construction of a new campus on a site located on a 55-acre tract of land. An Acute Care Center, In-patient tower, and diagnostic and treatment hospital are planned to be constructed. During construction of the facilities, Terracon provided construction materials engineering and testing services to assure quality control. Our services included testing of building pad fill materials, monitoring the installation of drilled and under-reamed piers, shallow spread footings, observing the placement and size of reinforcing steel, testing and monitoring of cast in place concrete, visual and ultrasonic inspection of structural steel welded and bolted connections, and fireproofing thickness and density testing.
