Description:

  • More than 50,000 students will likely pass through the Speedway Mall on the UT-Austin campus. Flintco managed the pedestrian and landscape enhancements to one of the heaviest traffic areas on campus, addressing daily campus circulation with safe, and well-lit pathways.
  • The half-mile includes approximately 17 miles of existing utilities, and our team also installed of approximately 2,400 feet of new utilities.
  • We coordinated heavily with adjacent building managers, faculty, staff, the fire marshal to address accessibility issues, and multiple location changes of fencing to mark the limits of construction. Flintco also coordinated with facilities personnel to limit impacts on existing trees. In collaboration with the UT project team, Flintco coordinated student breaks with critical path items to accelerate the schedule by three months.
