USMA Foley Athletic Center

Tectonic has a long history of performing work at various sites throughout the United States Military Academy. Tectonic provided multi-discipline support including civil and geotechnical engineering, surveying, and construction inspection services for the design and construction phases at the Foley Athletic Center, a 77,000-square foot facility designed by Baker Barrios Architects. The Center was constructed to provide Army athletic teams with a climate-controlled indoor practice facility.

Services included:

  • Performing a value engineering redesign of the project’s stormwater management facility to address impacts of shallow rock, groundwater influence, and construction budget.
  • Providing State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Compliance inspections (under NYSDEC General Permit) to assist with the Contractor’s management of erosion and sediment control associated with the project’s development.
  • Performing a ground survey based on the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 1988) with mapping prepared in AutoCAD format showing all visible improvements, subsurface utility information, and topography to facilitate design of the new facility.
  • During construction, setting survey control lines for the installation of steel frame and pre-fabricated panels for the new building, drainage, and sanitary sewer structures.

The completed facility has become the largest donation in the history of the Academy. It houses a regulation 100-yard football field with a FieldTurf® playing surface utilized by several of Army’s teams including football, baseball, softball, soccer, and lacrosse.
