Cole Field House & Public Policy Building Site

Project Overview
Two separate projects were performed over a span of three years on campus while classes were in session. Completed wet and dry utility work for the new Cole Field House and for the new Public Policy Building.
Unique Challenges
  • For the Cole Field House project, worked directly with WSSC to facilitate all inspections to achieve acceptance per WSSC guidelines. Revised plans were submitted to WSSC on two occasions to alter the design. The project ended up taking three years to complete, due to frequent breaks for scheduled campus activities and other on-site trade work.
  • The Public Policy Building site was a high-profile project and was directly adjacent to the Armory, where University of Maryland executives work. Having minimum impact on the campus day-to-day was paramount.
