Civil Site Design

The University of Oklahoma teamed up with Cabbiness Engineering,LLC & The McKinney Partnership Architects, both of Norman, OK, to design and oversee the construction progress for the Five Partners Place building that was constructed in 2014.

The Civil Engineering aspects of the project included the following:

 

  • Paving:

    • An expanded drive was proposed at Lawrence Avenue. This expanded drive provides access to the dumpster enclosure as originally designed, but also allows small truck traffic access to the north side of the building. Paving for this drive consisted of heavy duty paving.

    • The sidewalk on the north side of the building was adjusted to accommodate the paving layout and building access. The heavy duty paving was provided through the portion of the sidewalk connecting the expanded drive and the building.

    • The sidewalk at the southwest corner of the site was amended to better incorporate existing site objects and better match existing sidewalks.

    • A section of sidewalk leading to Stephenson Parkway and the accompanying crosswalk was removed from the project.

  • Utilities:

    • The expansion of the drive and sidewalk adjustments placed additional paving over the original chilled water alignment. The chilled water alignment was amended to minimize the chilled water piping under pavement/sidewalk.

  • Grading:

    • Grading near the north side of the building was adjusted to accommodate the drive expansion and additional sidewalk.
