West Haymarket Expansion

Lincoln, NE

The West Haymarket Redevelopment was one of the City of Lincoln’s largest endeavors. Benesch was selected as the prime consultant to lead all environmental investigation, design and construction oversight for the West Haymarket Redevelopment. Benesch was responsible for managing and executing environmental studies to address all construction-related hazards, including vapor intrusion, excavated soils and debris and management of investigation derived wastes.

The ECP now serves as a guide for all future development in the area. Our environmental services included Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments, wetland delineations and soils/groundwater drilling, sampling and on-going monitoring.

Benesch has also provided geotechnical investigations and recommendations for the arena and nearby buildings. Our geotechnical services and analysis included over 50 investigational borings, 1,000 arena related pile inspections, arena floor subgrade / deep foundation recommendations and structure approval.

In addition, Benesch provided engineering and oversight for all related BNSF Railway and UPRR facility and track relocations.
