Challenges
  • UConn Health retained Zuvic Carr in February 2016 to provide consulting engineering design and construction phase services related to the evaluation and replacement of parking lots servicing the main building (~500 spaces).
  • The initial task was to complete a geotechnical investigation to determine the composition of the pavement and design options for the reconstruction of each lot. Zuvic Carr also incorporated drainage and utility improvements.
  • Part of this assignment was to schedule the construction of various parking lots to maximize the number of available parking spaces during construction, while maintaining smooth and safe traffic circulation.
Solutions
  • UConn Health divided this project into two phases with separate construction documents. Zuvic Carr assisted with bidding and construction administration for parking lots D&K, completed in December 2016.
  • Construction Administration services included: attending field meetings, consultation during construction, evaluating contractor submittals and responding to requests for information.
Highlights
  • Due to successfully completing the first two lots, UConn requested our services for Phase 2, encompassing parking and utilities reconstruction for 3 additional lots. (Lots A, B & C ~350 spaces).
  • This work included designing local access improvements and required scope/schedule and access coordination with a general contractor working at the site.
