GEOTECHNICAL

We approach each project with a unique strategy of maintaining a dynamic presence from initial planning through the final phases of construction, thus providing the opportunity to be actively engaged in innovative engineering and implementation of ideas that ultimately contributes to a successful project. Our experience and dedication to the client, community, innovation and continued education allows our geotechnical engineers, materials engineers and construction quality control teams to become an integral component to the projects process and successful completion.

GEOTECHNICAL DESIGN

Seasoned engineers and inspectors are highly trained to provide services for a variety of public works, municipal, transportation, industrial, commercial, water resources, residential, and environmental projects.

GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

Our geotechnical engineers understand the impact of the various subsurface conditions can have on the cost, risk, schedule and development of the project. Armed with this knowledge and extensive experience, we are able to approach the project with a commitment to the success of our client’s vision.

CONSTRUCTION TESTING AND INSPECTION QUALITY CONTROL

Our field testing staff is certified through NAQTC (Nevada Alliance for Quality Transportation Construction), ACI (American Concrete Institute), and ICBO (International Council of Building Officials), and our field testing programs and Quality Systems are ASTM C 1077, ASTM D 3666, ASTM 3740, and ASTM E 329 compliant.

BUILDING INSPECTION

ICC (International Code Council) certified building inspectors provide building inspections to supplement local building departments that include structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing inspections for residential and commercial structures.

MATERIALS TESTING

Wood Rodgers is certified in AASHTO Material Referenced Laboratory (AMRL) and Cement and Concrete Referenced Laboratory (CCRL) assessment programs. We provide responsive, accurate and precise materials engineering and testing support throughout design and construction phases of the project.
Our state-of-the-art, Asphalt Binder Testing Laboratory is capable of testing asphalt properties and able to evaluate binder characteristics as required by project specifications.

Wildcreek High School Construction

Project Case Study

Wildcreek High School Campus

Sparks, Nevada

Wood Rodgers provided professional engineering for the Washoe County School District (WCSD) to convert an existing 600-acre, golf course site for the construction of this new high school. The 87-acre high school campus is nestled within the northern portion of a 330.7-acre site that is located within an existing 600-acre, golf course site with North McCarran Boulevard bordering the site to the south, Sullivan Lane bordering the site on the west, with single family residential bordering the site on the east. The high school campus includes high school building, athletic facilities, required parking, and necessary landscaping and drainage facilities. The preliminary plan and study retrofitted the existing golf course to retain nine holes. This three-story, 295,000 sf school will have a 435-seat performing art center, three gymnasiums, and over 80 classrooms that include group rooms and art and music labs. The new high school is scheduled to open August 2022 and will be considered a new model/prototype for future high schools for WCSD.
