As the site planner, engineer, surveyor, landscape architect, and erosion control inspector for this $75M project, our team faced several challenges. Flooding, contaminated soils, the need to keep the road and mall open during construction—we had to overcome these roadblocks through a tough and accelerated work schedule.
Having a collaborative, multi-disciplinary team and a strong relationship with our clients contributed to the result: a 232,000-square-foot expansion complete with two satellite retail buildings. We helped to increase the gross floor area to over 875,000 square feet and add over 1,100 parking spaces with 40 motor coach units. Our design also enhanced site circulation and access, implementing a new entrance from the public highway as well as three cross access connections to an adjacent retail development.
Sensitive to community needs, we provided upgrades to the town’s sanitary system. We also designed a storm water mitigation system to correct existing flooding conditions and handle runoff generated by the improvements. Ultimately, our collaborative success created jobs, enhanced area-wide economics, and improved the aesthetics of this important, internationally-renowned destination.
