University of Connecticut – NextGen Hall

Langan provided geotechnical engineering services for the Design Build project at the University of Connecticut (UConn) NextGen Hall.  This 210,000-SF residence hall will consist of an eight story structure housing 720 students and is the first phase of the Next Generation initiative to support the additional education incentive for science technology engineering and math programs. Langan’s scope of work during the design phases included reviewing available bridging documents, conducting a confirmation geotechnical subsurface investigation, preparation of a formal geotechnical engineering report, providing geotechnical consultation during design, preparing specifications, and reviewing construction documents. During the construction phase, Langan provided construction administration services for the geotechnical engineering aspects of the project. The project is expected to achieve LEED Silver certification.
