TSC Engineering Company's task included preparation of a topographic and tree surveies, site plans, including street, drainage and utility requirements and order of magnitude estimate for each. TSC also developed a conceptual design of preferred massing concept for the site plan and a construction estimate for all civil tasks associated with the project. TSC provided the Architect with a Work Plan which included a description of planned activities, a schedule with milestones, manpower projections, estimates of cost and a list of deliverables. TSC managed the Civil Design efforts/task of the project and complied with and incorporated into the applicable design products and related data, all review comments and subsequent design instructions provided to TSC by the METRO Project Manager.
This project features 175,000 SF of new construction and 113,000 SF of renovation to the existing building. TSC provided utility research, prepared a civil site plan, grading and drainage plan, and civil demolition plan of the construction area, provided storm sewer calculations, and provided detention facility calculations, as well as plan and profile drawings for the sanitary sewer tie-in. TSC also provided topographic surveying and control services.
TSC provided civil engineering design for site improvements and utility adjustments for the expansion of the stadium.This project includes new 8” water lines and four fire hydrants, 8” to 12” sanitary sewers, an automatic pumping station and 20” outfall for storm drainage, as well as coordination with Entex (CenterPoint) for new gas service to the stadium.
This project featured the design of a 400-meter running track with a soccer field inside and a standard NCAA softball field.

The work included all existing underground utility relocations, site work, and paving. It also included the design of all in-ground equipment and facilities, the sub-drainage system for the track and soccer field, an irrigation system for the soccer field, 2,500 seat bleacher foundations, a 90-ft. tall high mast light pole foundation, and parking lot designs for relocated parking. The project included selecting qualified equipment suppliers, as well.
TSC provided professional engineering design, NPDES permitting, civil/site work, parking, paving and drainage, comprehensive surveying, technical specifications and construction phase services on this project with Hines Interests and Kendall-Heaton Architects.
