Project: Bowling Green State University IDIQ – Parking Lots and Roads

Owner: Bowling Green State University

Year: 2012-2019

Cost: Varies per Year

Project Manager: Hamid Mukhtar, PhD, PE

Scope: Star was hired by BGSU to conduct an assessment of Pavements throughout the Campus. As a result Star conducted distress surveys throughout the campus to prioritize rehabilitation activities. Starís contract has been amended to include services for years 2013 and 2014. Parking Lots 5-west, 2 and R were rehabilitated under the 2012 contract. Parking Lots C, 16, and H were rehabilitated under the 2013 contract. Other renovations included Alumni Drive, Kreischer Drive, Access Road & Parking Lot 34. IDIQ Contract was extended to 2019, and 2016 Contract is currently ongoing.

Project: Blankenship Hall Parking Lots

Owner: Ohio State University

Year: 2006

Cost: $350,000

Project Manager: Hamid Mukhtar, PhD, PE

Scope: This project was undertaken to rehabilitate the existing parking lot facility and access drive at Blankenship Hall. The existing pavement exhibited severe distress and fatigue accompanied by drainage issues. A geotechnical investigation revealed that the existing pavement was under-designed, consisting of only a 2î layer of flexible asphalt pavement. Our recommendations to the Department were to increase the pavement thickness to meet AASHTO design requirements, and make improvements to the existing pavement drainage system. The parking lot lighting system was redesigned. A parking lot surveillance system was also installed. Existing concrete curbs were replaced with new where warranted. Maintenance of traffic plans were developed to allow uninterrupted use of the parking facility during the construction phase.

The scope of work for project included field survey, pavement design, drainage design, curb replacement, geotechnical investigation, lighting design, maintenance of traffic scheme, cost estimates, schematic plans, preparation of construction documents, and construction administration.

Project: Camp Perry, Trippe Lot, Parking Lot

Owner: Ohio Army National Guard

Year: 2010

Cost: $600,000

Project Manager: Hamid Mukhtar, PhD, PE

Scope: Project was undertaken to rehabilitate Trippe Road at the Camp Perry Armory. Roadway was rebuilt to accommodate heavy vehicle traffic. Parking Lot #1 was reconstructed and expanded, including the addition of a new entrance /exit drive to facilitate truck circulation. Existing pavement was removed and new pavement was installed and new catch basins. Drainage was a major factor in design , because of the limited storm system on base. Scope also included curbs, estimation, schematic design, construction documents and construction administration.

Civil: ADA compliance, pavement evaluation/design, geotechnical investigations, survey and drainage design.

Project: Camp Ravenna Sustain Drop Zone

Owner: USAF Youngstown

Year: 2015

Cost: $995,500

Project Manager: Hamid Mukhtar, PhD, PE

Scope: The Drop Zone is leased from the Army National Guard and the Air Force is responsible for maintaining it to its original condition. The use of the drop zone over the years has broken down the natural surface water drainage system which needs to be restored. This will require the regrading and seeding of most of the 338 acres and restoring the natural ditches throughout the area. In addition the driveways and culverts need to be repaired to support the equipment used to retrieve the loads that are dropped. Amount of rejuvenated vehicle Driveways is approximately 3.25 miles using gravel as the material of choice.

Starís tasks were 1.) Restore grading and drainage to prior conditions 2.) To sustain existing vehicle driveways repair/ install culverts to restore natural pathways of the water drainage system.

Project: NCC/OSU Parking Lots and Structural Repairs

Owner: North Central State and Ohio State University

Year: 2009

Cost: $1,165,000

Project Manager: Hamid Mukhtar, PhD, PE

Scope: This project was undertaken to rehabilitate the existing parking lots and bridge at the Mansfield and Shelby campuses of North Central State College & Ohio State University Campus. There were 6 parking lots to be rehabilitated at the Mansfield Campus, and one parking lot and one bridge at the Shelby Campus. The existing pavements were mainly flexible with rigid pavements at Shelby campus were in extremely poor condition with drainage issues A program of Requirement to fit the project budget was approved by the owner and State Architectís Office. Construction plans for pavement rehabilitation using ODOT material specifications were developed. Existing concrete curbs and full depth pavement rehabilitation was performed. Coordination of rehabilitation activities with University activities were the main focus of the construction phase along with underground utilities. Maintenance of traffic plans were developed to allow uninterrupted use of the parking facilities during the construction phase. The project also included the installation of a new precast sign equipped with electronic message board at the west side entrance of the Mansfield Campus.

The scope of work for project included POR development, Distress and topographic survey, pavement evaluation and design, drainage design, curb replacement, electronic message sign installation (IT), maintenance of traffic scheme, cost estimates, schematic plans, preparation of construction documents, and construction administration phases of the project.
