The project, designed by Johnson Fain, is LEED Certified and reflects the area’s vitality and historical context.
The Fuscoe team provided full civil engineering and stormwater management services for this project. With over 30 feet of vertical grade change to contend with at certain portions of the site, careful coordination was required with all disciplines to ensure the programmatic intentions were accomplished while designing constructible solutions. As with most dense infill podium-style projects, stormwater quality compliance required careful consideration and close coordination with the building architect, landscape architect and plumbing engineer.
