Initial Discovery Work Underway on New College of Law Building

The week of June 25 marked an historic occasion in the construction of the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law’s new building. That’s when general contractor Big-D Construction and its subcontractors began discovery for utilities in the College’s existing parking lot for the new building site.  This process, known as “pot-holing,” involves hydro-evacuation of specific locations on the site, digging down through soil up to 15 feet in some locations. 

The pot-holing, which has been described as a messy but critical activity, is expected to take about a week.
