Cunningham Engineering collaborated with two different architectural firms to provide civil services for the detailed programming phase and construction design phase of the Schaal Aquatic Center at UC Davis. This state-of-the-art facility supplements existing facilities to better meet the needs of Intercollegiate Athletics (ICA) as well as serve the entire Davis community. 

Project challenges included interface with an adjacent utility infrastructure project, alternative/revised site and parking lot designs, as well as nonexistent utility services to project site.
