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.
