The Capital Area Development Authority (CADA) East End Complex campus represents the largest office-building project ever built by the State and incorporated significant environmental and energy efficient measures “becoming the model for future ‘green’ construction projects.” Clark/ Gruen’s work included 1.1 million square feet of new office space constructed of structural steel buildings varying in height from three to seven stories and a 5-story post-tension parking facility and subterranean tunnel. The three year project was completed in Winter 2003.
Signet provided special inspection and material testing services including earthwork, auger cast piles, soils nails; steel reinforcement, concrete, post-tension tendon placement and stressing operations, shotcrete, masonry, structural steel, ultrasonic testing, high-strength bolting, proof-load torque testing, & fireproofing. Due to the fast track nature and large site, we provided lead inspectors for each of the block developments which were responsible for the coordination of inspections, communication with the design/construction team, tracking and resolution of non-compliance issues. At peak times, Signet had up to nine inspectors on the project.
