Home to the Major League Soccer’s San Jose Earthquakes, Avaya Stadium was built on the site of the FMC Corporation’s Central Plant facility. The stadium features a European roof design that covers all 14,000 seats. Langan recommended shallow foundations for support of the stadium, providing significant cost savings compared to deep foundations. Our environmental team assisted with the Soil Management Plan, worked with the California Department of Toxic Substances Control to recycle concrete from the former FMC facility, evaluated potential vapor intrusion risks from residual volatile organic compounds, which demonstrated that a sub-slab vapor mitigation system was unnecessary, and prepared the site closure report.
