The NAU Science & Health building is a 5-story, 120,000 square foot research facility constructed to hold classrooms, laboratories, and to meet the demand of increasing STEM needs. With a budget of 71.9 million, it earned the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver Certification. It also received the “Best Project-Higher Education/Research” award from ENR Southwest; and the “RED Award-Education” from AZ Big Media/AZRE. Western Technologies provided environmental and geotechnical services including drilled shaft and footing recommendations. In addition, we performed construction materials testing and special inspections for the earthwork, reinforced concrete, and the steel-frame.
The US Highway 89 Improvements project consisted of reconstructing four miles and four lanes of highway on the Navajo Nation 50 miles north of Flagstaff. The $36.7 million project included the addition of two new bridges over the Little Colorado River. The construction of a roundabout provided easier accessibility for residents of the Navajo Reservation and for travelers visiting the Grand Canyon and the Four Corners region. Western Technologies performed construction materials testing on the earthwork, base course and asphalt concrete pavement, as well as miscellaneous concrete for surrounding pedestrian pathways.
The Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona is a 50,000 square foot treatment facility designed by Dekker Perich Sabatini (DPS Design). It is currently under construction and will provide intensive rehabilitation services for patients recovering from disabling diseases and injuries. Western Technologies performed a subsurface exploration and geotechnical evaluation, and is providing construction materials testing and special inspection services for earthwork, reinforced concrete, and welding.
