Bear River High School Performing Arts Center – Grass Valley, CA

Holdrege & Kull provided a variety of geotechnical, materials testing, and special inspection services on this new 11,000-square-foot, multi-level structural steel performing arts center that included a theatrical stage, auditorium seating, and office space. H&K services included a geotechnical investigation and report; review of plans and specifications for testing requirements; and materials testing during casting of the foundation and slabs-on-grade, including concrete slump, air content, strength, unit weight, and water cement ratios. In addition, H&K provided periodic batch plant inspections to observe procedures, review scale calibrations, and verify sand moisture. H&K also coordinated visual and non-destructive testing services in the fabricator’s shop (located in Ogden, Utah) during fabrication of structural steel sections. H&K prepared field and laboratory reports electronically on a daily basis for distribution to parties involved in review and coordinated the transfer of documentation to DSA during the transfer of responsibilities associated with the materials testing.
