Cal Geo Tech Tour – Skanska Civil USA

Next Friday, April 12th, Cal Geo will be hosting an awesome tech tour with the big time general contractor Skanska USA Civil. Skanska will be allowing full access to some of their large heavy civil transportation job sites. They will be taking us through thier I-215 and Colton Crossing jobs during construction. The I-215 job includes several new concrete bridges, freeway widening, and several large retaining walls. The Colton Crossing is a unique grade seperation job between BNSF and UPRR tracks that includes a large MSE wall system, backfilled with cellcrete, and a steel girder bridge. Don’t miss this great oppurtunity to see real life projects and the engineering that goes on behind them. This is also a great networking oppurtunity. One of our current officers landed an intership with Skanska by networking at last year’s tech tour.

Carpools will be leaving from Cal Poly Police station at 8am sharp and will be arriving at Skanka’s Riverside office by 9am. The tour will run until 1pm and carpools should arrive back at Cal Poly by 2pm. All safety equipment will be provided by Skanska. However you must wear boots (work boots or hiking boots) and pants. If interested, please email Nathan Tourtellote at nathant@csupomona.edu┬áto reserve your spot. There is a limit of 12 and it will be first come first serve, so hurry up!

Hope to see you guys there!!
