Uva Gibbons (3)- student housing construction services - Civil Engineering Firm

UVA Gibbons House

[vc_row content_aligment="center"][vc_column][vc_column_text] Draper Aden provided site planning and engineering services for the demolition of an existing building and the construction of a new 65,365 GSF student housing facility including topographic survey, Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE), site planning/civil engineering and LEED® evaluation services. Due to the existing slope of the site, stormwater planning and erosion and sediment control were especially challenging. Additionally, the new residence hall and amenities must be designed to tie into a large number of existing utilities and a concurrent construction project on an adjacent site. Draper Aden was also involved in the master planning efforts for buildings 6, 7, and 8. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

VMI Corps Physical Training Facility

[vc_row content_aligment="center"][vc_column][vc_column_text] This 205,000-SF facility includes a state-of-the-art 200-meter hydraulic track, timed obstacle and high ropes courses, a 34-foot climbing wall, and an underground parking deck with 126 spaces. The site conditions involved critical stormwater planning to minimize the environmental impact. Phase I services from Draper Aden included floodplain modeling of existing and proposed conditions and design of grading, stormwater management, vehicular and pedestrian circulation and access, and utility connections, including coordination with electric, gas, and communication providers.   The building site also included a small stream, Town Branch, which carries stormwater away from the city of Lexington and into the Maury River. The new facility included the installation of several detention structures to reduce runoff from the project and will slowly release its waters into Town Branch.   Phase II involved the renovation of Cocke Hall and Cormack Hall. Cocke Hall has been equipped with a brand-new weight room and strength training facilities, along...
