The project team utilized an augured-in piles system, called Tubex. This system produced noise less than that of a lawnmower with no vibration noted beyond the project boundary. Sundt inspected and videotaped adjacent homes prior to commencing this process, as well as during, to track noise and vibration levels.
This project consisted of two buildings for California State University, Chico. Sutter Hall is a 113,210-square-foot facility that provides living space for 228 students in a dormitory-cluster format. The Housing and Dining Building has a 24,951-square-foot dining facility on the first floor with seating for over 600, as well as support and mechanical space for the kitchen in the basement of the building. The second building is a 10,196-square-foot programming building. It is two stories and consists of offices, recreation space, and other program space for on-campus student residents.
