University of Texas – Little Campus Renovation – Austin, Texas
The University of Texas Heman Sweatt Campus (Little Campus) was developed in 1858 and the remaining buildings on the site were entered into the Historical Register in 1974. There are two original buildings remaining on the Little Campus. The building now called “Hargis Hall” was designed by Atlee Ayres and is the only remaining Victorian building on campus. The building now called “Nowotny Building” is the oldest building on campus and was designed by Abner Cook, the architect of the Governor’s Mansion. The purpose of this project was to convert the existing lawn and gardens between the Historical Buildings into a parking lot that would serve as a vital staging area for future construction on/near the UT Campus.
Because of the site’s Historical designations there were several elements that had to be considered. Our project scope included design for retaining walls, tree relocation and tree removal, grading, site permitting, paving and drainage, right-of-way vacation and OFPC SWPPP.
Jose I. Guerra Inc. provided complete civil and structural engineering design services.
