AvalonBay Communities, Inc.
Formerly known as Movietown, is a three-acre mixed-use site consisting of two market-rate apartment buildings and one affordable senior building.
Two of the buildings are designed to achieve LEED Silver certification and the senior building will be built for LEED Gold certification. Fuscoe provided construction staking and full civil engineering services, including pre-design survey, tentative and final subdivision mapping and civil site design. Our unique project contributions came in two forms; first, the project’s storm water management schemes, including the City’s SUSMP compliance, were particularly challenging due to the site’s zero foot building set-back coupled with shallow ground water conditions. The solution involved a complex network of extremely tight drainage pipe routings connecting the multi-level podium bio-retention treatment planters to the roof top and podium areas they serve. The second contribution involved Fuscoe’s sophisticated 3-D modelling of the surface grading, storm drain and other utility infrastructure for full digital interfacing with the project’s Revit Architecture deliverable.
