Shelby County’s New PreK – 8 Elementary School

Shelby, Ohio

This new school building puts all students together on one campus.

CT Consultants performed a geotechnical subsurface investigation, Phase I environmental site assessment (ESA), and quality control testing and inspection services for the site of a new PK-8 School for the Shelby City School District under the direction of Garmann Miller Architects.

The new school will house 1,260 PK-8 students in a 146,312 sf building designed by Garmann Miller Architects.

We performed the Phase I ESA in conformance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process.

This Phase I ESA aimed to identify, to the extent feasible according to the processes prescribed in ASTM E 1527-13, Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) in connection with the site through site surveys, interviews, and a review of reasonably ascertainable regulatory and historical documentation.

The final geotechnical subsurface investigation evaluated the subsurface conditions and laboratory data relative to the final design and construction of foundations, building slabs, pavements, and underground utilities at the site. To accomplish this, we performed 12 test borings, field and laboratory soil testing, and a geotechnical engineering evaluation of the test results.

Our quality control testing and inspection services consisted of:

    • Subgrade soil evaluation
    • Soil/stone compaction
    • Concrete testing (including steel reinforcement inspection)
    • Masonry testing and inspection
      Structural steel testing and inspection
    • Asphalt testing and inspection (as required by the Ohio Building Code Special Inspections)
