The project also included much needed landscape improvements and a new parking lot. Fuscoe provided comprehensive civil engineering and water quality (WQMP/SWPPP) design, construction documents, plan checking, bid assistance, construction administration and as-builts. With no storm drains nearby, a pump was implemented along with shallow infiltration design.
