George Washington Carver Museum

Austin, TX

We designed the grading, drainage, parking, and water and wastewater facilities for the George Washington Carver Museum and Library expansion project. The museum itself encompasses 30,000 SF and the library addition is 15,000 SF. Major elements of the job included designing a storm water detention facility and relocating 500 LF of the city's 24-inch water transmission main to facilitate placement of the new museum. We designed all specifications to adhere to the City of Austin's environmental sustainability building program. In addition, our staff also looked into options to obtain LEED credits for storm water and existing pavement material re-use. Other issues we encountered included inserting a stopping valve into the existing 24-inch line because of faulty valving on the existing system. We were able to coordinate with the city's water and wastewater department and the contractor to install the stopping valve.

Guerrero Thompson Elementary School

Austin, TX

The Austin Independent School District (AISD) was in need of opening a new elementary school to serve the north central region of Austin to relieve the overcrowding at McBee and Walnut Creek campuses. This site is located at 102 E. Rundberg Lane and sits on approximately 18 acres. After a prolonged site acquisition process, AISD scheduled a 40-classroom school opening by August 2013. Due in part to our efforts on this project, the two-story 98,000 SF school opened on time. We were responsible for all civil engineering and development permitting for the site. We designed the signalized intersection at Rundberg Lane, analyzed and reclaimed portions of the site out of the floodplain to make room for the school improvements, and designed the drives, parking, stormwater management and utilities for the site.

Jaime D. Padron Elementary School

Austin, TX

We were responsible for a complete renovation and addition to existing industrial buildings in order to create a two-story elementary school in a highly developed area. This 115,967 SF school includes 112 parking spaces. Due to the large amount of apartments in the area, it was anticipated that 75% of the student population would walk or bike to school. To facilitate pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic, a High-Intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) was designed into the project to cross West Rundberg Lane, an arterial road adjacent to the site. We completed all civil engineering and development permitting for the site to include designing a left turn lane on the existing arterial road for access into the site and adjusted internal circulation and existing driveways to create one way traffic flow in and out of the site. We also utilized existing regional water quality and detention facilities to avoid additional on-site stormwater management requirements. In addition, the existing pavement condition was assessed to determine what pavement areas required rehabilitation or replacement.

Nan Clayton Elementary School

Austin, TX

The Austin Independent School District (AISD) was in dire need of opening a new elementary school to serve the southwest region of Austin, particularly the Circle C area. This area has been served by the Kiker Elementary School since 1991. With the population growth in the region, Kiker had doubled in occupancy through the use of portable classroom buildings and a higher student/teacher ratio. Through the November 2004 Bond election, voters authorized funds to build a new school in this area. AISD scheduled a 40 classroom school opening by August 2006. The selected site was within the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone (Barton Springs Zone) and had no road or utilities adjacent to the site. We were responsible for all civil engineering and development permitting for the site and quickly identified that the land plan provided by the architect and AISD would not meet the environmental regulations for impervious cover limits within the Edwards Aquifer. To mitigate this, we worked with the design team in creating a new site plan that was more environmentally sound. We designed the drives, parking, stormwater management and utilities for the site. Our design included a zero-discharge retention/re-irrigation system that met the non-degradation standards of the City of Austin. The irrigation facilities were placed within a native vegetation area with minimal disturbance to the ground. Where necessary, small cedar trees were hand-cut at ground level to provide an area for the irrigation heads to spray. The schedule required a construction groundbreaking by August 1, 2005 for a school opening for following year. We prepared all site development permit application materials, the TCEQ Water Pollution Abatement Plan, construction documents, and permit acquisition. All permits were acquired by August 1st enabling construction to commence on schedule.

Austin, TX

We developed a 51,070 SF health clinic building including the following site improvements for this 7 acre site: parking lots, drives, ADA-accessible sidewalks, crosswalks and ramps, water quality and detention ponds, and water and wastewater and landscaping. The project had a very quick design and permitting schedule, which consisted of three months for site development plan preparation and three months for acquiring the City of Austin Site Development Permit. Due to the aggressive project schedule, our staff held several meetings with City of Austin Development Review staff and resolved the major site issues such as the Subchapter E requirements, Heritage Trees and Protected Trees, and Fire Department ingress and egress. Several meetings with the residents in the nearby neighborhoods were held where the team presented the project and addressed any concerns the residents had. The final design plans had over 40 Civil Engineering sheets that included detailed grading plans (including ADA-accessible routes), water and wastewater plans, storm drain plans, water quality and detention ponds plans, erosion/sedimentation controls, tree protection plans, and traffic control plans. The project was designed and permitted within six months. Our staff performed periodic inspections, reviewed contractor's submittals, clarified drawings and answered Request-for-Information. This project was completed on schedule and within budget. In addition, this healthcare center achieved the Silver Rating in the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Program.

Solar Array at Northfield Mountain

Northfield, MA

Working with New England Environmental and GDF Suez, we provided planning, engineering and design services for a solar array project in the Town of Northfield, MA. For this project, we identified potential candidate sites up to 15 acres in area for the development of the proposed solar facility. This work involved a review of property maps, existing survey data, topographic maps, aerial photographs, GIS data layers and other available documents. A detailed zoning and permitting summary was also prepared to identify potential constraints. The review resulted in a compilation schematic base map which identified the potential sites and showed their orientation. Site visits to each of the candidate sites were then conducted to evaluate solar aspect and suitability (available sunlight throughout the year), and to evaluate construction suitability, engineering feasibility, and environmental feasibility. The schematic base map and site visit yielded the recommendation of three top candidate sites for construction of the solar array. The completed solar farm is adjacent to the Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center along Route 63. The 2 megawatt (MW) facility is comprised of 18,000 PV panels and is one of the largest solar installations in New England.

The $40 Million Residence Hall, at 450 beds and 124 units, totals at 185,500 SF and will allow approximately half of the student body to reside on campus. This provides significant housing options to the University as it attracts more out-of-state and international students who often can not afford the rising housing costs in Austin. The site development permit also includes construction of the driveway, parking spaces, grading/drainage, utility, water quality measures and landscape improvements. Construction will be underway in August 2016.
