Civil Engineering

Project Description

JVA was the civil engineer for this state-of-the-art educational and research facility. The Aerospace Engineering Sciences (AES) building will support one of the nation’s top-ranked aerospace programs and is one of the first buildings to be constructed under the master plan of the University’s East Campus. Future phases of the master plan were considered and coordinated with the University to maximize the infrastructure being constructed as a part of the AES project.   Exterior site improvements included pedestrian plazas and walkways, utility service connections, service yard and delivery areas, large-scale stormwater quality rain gardens, an oil-water separator for wash-down areas associated with rocket engine testing, and fields for the testing of ground rovers and unmanned aircraft. JVA provided guidance for situating the building both vertically and horizontally outside of the floodplain of the adjacent Skunk Creek. Stormwater conveyance systems were designed accordingly for discharge into the floodplain.
