City of Mebane Real Estate Development

[vc_row content_aligment="center"][vc_column][vc_column_text] For over 120 years, this landmark furniture manufacturing company operated in the heart of Mebane, NC.  After closing operations, the historic site became prime real estate for mixed use development and downtown rejuvenation.  Initially, Draper Aden performed a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment on the property to help the developer assess his risk before proceeding. Additionally, under an Administrative Agreement (AA) with NCDENR Inactive Hazardous Sites Branch, a Remedial Action Plan (RAP) had been submitted to excavate contaminated soil and sediment. Draper Aden helped the owner negotiate a new AA and managed the expedited cleanup to meet a rigid deadline for obtaining a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) loan critical for moving the project forward.   After excavation of approximately 1,130 tons of contaminated soil, a Remedial Action Completion report was certified and submitted to the REC Program who issued a No Further Action (NFA) letter within 24 hours...

Town of Erwin W.N. Porter Park

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Draper Aden Associates team worked with the Town of Erwin to create and file an application with the North Carolina Parks and Recreation for a PARTF grant to upgrade a 30+ year old well-loved and heavily used recreational park within the Town. The grant application was awarded in 2014 for a total project budget of approximately $200,000. The park site included two intersecting streams and a mature growth of well-spaced trees. The team integrated these natural features into the overall park design and added new walking trails, benches, a new parking lot, a new picnic shelter, new grills and a new toddler playground. In addition, the existing parking lot, picnic shelter, and basketball court were fully renovated and given a brand new look.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

One of the top priorities for the Council was regionalization of solid waste management services. At the time, six separate landfill facilities served the region, and it was conceived that significant cost savings could be realized by the efficient operation of one facility instead of numerous facilities. Draper Aden was procured by the regional working group to follow-up on initial cost analyses, and for implementation of the regional concept. Ultimately, an Authority was formed consisting of the Cities of Lynchburg and Bedford, and Campbell, Appomattox, and Nelson Counties.   The list below summarizes the Region 2000 projects assigned to the DAA team (partial listing): - Revisions to Solid Waste Management Plan - Update of financial analysis - Surveying support services - Permit amendment for...
