DESCRIPTION: The two-story, 50,000 SF OSU Beaver Store opened in August 2013. The store is integrated into the first two floors of the existing 5-story parking structure. The store has retail floor/warehouse space on the first level and corporate offices for the organizations operations on the second level.
SERVICE: Foundation Engineering provided a geotechnical investigation and construction observation services for the parking structure in 2005. With our previous knowledge of the site, our services for the Beaver Store focused on a review of the geotechnical components of the plans and specifications, and construction observation services to confirm the suitability of the soils to support shallow foundations.
