Nc parks and recreation - Park Designs and parking lot design- civil engineering firm

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]...

City of Martinsville Brownfields

We have been involved with the project's architect-of-record, Hanbury, since its inception.

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...

The grant proposal was successfully approved for expanded program funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, in the amount of $200,000. Subsequent to procurement, Draper Aden Associates was awarded a contract by the Town to begin the process of evaluating existing Brownfields sites for reuse as public facilities and/or for redevelopment as viable residential, commercial, industrial or mixed-use properties.   The project concentrated on two target areas: (1) the Historic Downtown Commercial District located near the center of Town, and (2) the Pulaski South Historical Residential and Industrial District, also known as Southside. The Town envisions developing these areas, which adjoin less affluent residential...
