  • Travis Pruitt & Associates provided surveying, civil engineering and construction administration services for the design and construction of this new 520-bed residence hall on UGA’s East Campus. Construction for this fast-track CM/GC at risk project was completed on schedule and opened for occupancy in August 2010. This project recieved LEED Gold Certification.

    The innovative design elements of this project include a gray water collection and re-use system, along with an underground cistern that stores stormwater runoff from the roof and paved driveways for re-use as cooling tower makeup water.

    The project required relocation of the 8-inch diameter sanitary sewer main. Topography and other site limitations dictated that the new sewer main be constructed within the right-of-way of the SR 8/10 Loop Highway (Athens ByPass). Working in close coordination with the general contractor, Georgia DOT and Athens-Clarke County Public Utilities, TPA developed the construction plans for relocation of the sanitary sewer main, obtained approval of the plans from ACCPUD and obtained the Utilities Facility Encroachment permit from GDOT.

    The new residence hall was constructed on a greenfield site. The significant increase in impervious area required new stormwater managment systems to comply with the stormwater quality and stormwater quantity provisions of the Athens-Clarke County Stormwater Ordinance. The overall stormwater management plan designed by TPA included bio-retention cells to provide stormwater treatment for runoff from the asphalt paved parking areas and a stormwater storage cistern to provide stormwater treatment for runoff from the dormitory roof and the concrete paved service driveway. Stormwater stored in the cistern is reused for cooling tower makeup water.
