How We Dug In

The project consists of academic facility for gifted youth and located on the ASU West Campus. The academy focuses on unquique learning spaces for STEM, Arts, Drama, Music, and Humanities programs. CYPRESS provded site civil engineering services for the project that included utility relocating and hydronic line design. The site is located within ASU West Campus and the promiximity to both known and unknown utilities presented the greatest challanges on the project. CYPRESS worked closed with the contractor to locate the utilites and decide whether it was feasible to design the site improvements around the utilites or if relocation was necessary.  Finally, CYPRESS worked closely with the landscape archiect to ensure the site improvements meshed seamlessly with the landing.
