The project consisted of the construction of a 7,200 SF retail building and associated parking at the Country Club Centre in the City of Sacramento. The site was an existing parking lot and was modified to create parking and circulation for the new building. The design made use of existing infrastructure and minimized demolition.
Doucet provided topographic mapping and produced the construction documents that included a demolition plan, horizontal control and paving plans, grading and drainage plans, sewer and water plans, SWPPP and erosion control, and specifications. Doucet submitted the plans to Sacramento County LDSIR and Sacramento Metropolitan Fire Department to aid in obtaining approval and assisted with the construction administration of the project
The 99 Restaurant and Pub was built in a stand-alone configuration on a 1.1-acre outlet of a deteriorating mall property. Doucet was the civil engineer for the overall mall redevelopment. A PizzaHut restaurant was demolished, and Doucet worked with the restaurant and the general contractor on the construction of a new building. Work on the project began from the very beginning conceptual stages through final permitting, out-to-bid documents and construction support for the project. Activities included civil engineering site design, demolition plan, layout, grading, utilities, stormwater management plan development and construction documents. Permitting of the site work included Chicopee Planning Board Site Plan Approval, Chicopee Planning Board Special Permit, Chicopee Conservation Commission Request for Determination of Applicability, Massachusetts Executive Office of Environmental Affairs, City DPW Sewer Connection Permit, and NPDES Stormwater Coverage.
The project consisted of comprehensive civil engineering, construction documents and construction administration for a 16-acre mixed-use development at the intersection of Highway 183 and MoPac in North Austin. Doucet's civil engineering design consisted grading, paving, drainage, water quality ponds, water, and sewer. As the prime consultant for the mixed-use development project, Doucet was involved through the entire life-cycle of the project, and provided planning, surveying, re-zoning, platting, coordination of joint-use utility services, and drainage facilities for the various users and construction administration. The overall development contains hotels, a restaurant, a retail center, Gateway Cinema Complex and two nine-story office buildings with a parking garage.
Arrowhead Ranch is a master-planned community for approximately 360 homes on 362 acres in Dripping Springs, Hays County, Texas. The property has a large amount of frontage along Onion Creek and beautiful views over the high bluffs overlooking Creek Road and Onion Creek. Arrowhead’s plan works to preserve the hill country charm and feel by developing a community with a majority of lots that will back to greenbelt or will be greater than ½ acre in size. Wide natural buffers will surround the property south and east side of the development and with natural hiking trails that traverse the development. This project will be a mixed development with three pad sites along the 290 frontage, totaling about 10 acres of commercial development. This project has also dedicated approximately 13 acres as parkland to the City. Doucet has been responsible for all infrastructure planning and design. We are utilizing swales and vegetative strips instead of traditional storm sewers that will have financial and aesthetic implications to the project.

Doucet was responsible for initial contract negotiations, client relationship management and design oversight on a multi-building retail development containing a Walgreen's store and a Starbuck's Coffee shop located on 5.147 acres in Bulverde, TX. Since the project site is over the Edward's Aquifer Recharge Zone, close coordination with TCEQ, GBRA, the City of Bulverde and TxDOT were key to the success of this project.
Engineer for the Calabria Office and Retail Development, which is part of the 26-acre Uplands Village development that provides over 30,000 SF of retail and office space. The site preserved large oaks and incorporates limestone rock walls and tree wells to blend into the landscape and courtyard area. This site is located in the Contributing Zone of the Edwards Aquifer, an environmentally sensitive area that is strictly regulated by both the State of Texas and the ordinances of the Village of Bee Cave. For this reason, the design included a low impact site with only a 58.6% impervious cover. A reirrigation system was designed to provide a high water quality treatment.
