The Reno Ice Phase I project is bringing the first Reno indoor ice rink to the area. The ice rink is NHL-size, 200-feet-by-85 feet. There is also a mezzanine level capable of holding a restaurant in the future. Black Eagle Consulting, Inc. provided materials testing and special inspection services for the Reno Ice Phase I project.
The laboratory testing BEC performed included: two Proctor curves, sieves, and Atterberg limits tests to characterize the site native and foundation aggregate base soils; concrete cylinders were tested for compressive strength; and two asphalt hot-mix samples were taken and tested for extraction by ignition, gradation, and theoretical maximum specific gravity during the project’s asphalt paving for the driveways and parking lot.
