Environmental Factors Come Into Play With Gateway Center Construction

The design of the Wheeling Gateway Center will be influenced by the survey results, while architects also take into account environmental factors during the blueprinting process.

The design of Wheeling Gateway Center is heavily influenced by environmental factors revealed in a geotechnical report, including soil composition and contaminants like arsenic and asbestos. Considerations extend to neighboring structures, such as the Wheeling Suspension Bridge, ensuring minimal impact during construction. Deep bedrock beneath the site necessitates a deep foundation system, affecting building height and cost. Design iterations will accommodate community desires while evaluating costs for the multi-use facility.
