Hillis-Carnes managed and coordinated the structural, civil, and architectural combined testing and inspection services for the new stadium of the Pittsburgh Steelers. This 1.4 million SF, 69,000-seat facility opened in August 2001. Hillis-Carnes was directly responsible for the management and administration of the construction plans, as well as the inspections of all structural steel, reinforcing steel, precast concrete erection, structural masonry, concrete for pile caps, grade beams, slab-on-grade/slab-on-deck, near surface soil compaction (including the playing field sub-grade), and waterproofing, and firestopping. The firm also managed the testing services performed by our MBE and WBE sub-consultants. Hillis-Carnes was also the Special Inspectors for the City of Pittsburgh verifying that all construction complied with the contract documents. Hillis-Carnes was on site 100% of the time through project completion.
