The return of the “I” to Red Hill was a significant project in many ways, as it meant a great deal to the university, the alumni, and the community. Since its removal in 2013, a number of groups had immediately begun working to restore it. The appointment of Kevin Satterlee as ISU president gave the final incentive to restore the “I” to Red Hill. A&E Engineering Inc. provided a preliminary design for the re-installment of the “I”. Which provided intuitive ideas to counter the issues the project faced, chief among them being erosion issues which were the cause of the removal of the original. Erosion was one of many issued the team faced during the project, including constructability, anchoring, placement, positioning. The overall project was accomplished through a great deal of collaboration and teamwork among faculty and students of the Civil and Environmental Engineering department, Krystal Chanda of A&E Engineering Inc., ISU Facilities, and the main Contractor Starr Corporation. From the foundations to the fiberglass grating, the historic Red Hill “I” was redesigned and constructed to last for decades above the campus of ISU.
