First published Tuesday, October 11, 2022
The University awarded a contract for Student Services Arcade Bldg foundation repairs.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate repairs were needed to prevent further loss or damage to University property.
The eastern section of the Student Services Arcade Building (Arcade) is on a crawlspace with shallow foundations that have been undermined. There is a risk of foundation failure if the underlying soils are compromised, especially during the planned demolition of the adjacent Illini Hall. The Contractor shall perform traditional underpinning by progressive excavation of small sections then filled in by cast-in-place concrete for the southern exterior strip footings. The northern strip footing shall be repaired by installing/restoring the interior concrete berm along the strip footing using shotcrete or cast-in-place concrete. Six interior spread footings will add supplemental supports extended to adjacent competent grade. See attached for complete details.
