WestSound Engineering, Inc. prepared the boundary and topographical survey of this 47-acre site. Technical assistance was provided during the sub-area planning to establish design standards for roads, utilities and storm drainage, which included the use of Low Impact Development (LID) design elements. Services included participation at neighborhood meetings. WSE staff designed site improvements and an off-site storm drainage outfall to the Washington Narrows for preliminary plat approval. LID improvements include narrow streets, rain gardens, biofiltration swales, greenways, and porous pavement. WSE represented the client at public hearings for the Sub-Area Plan approval and preliminary plat approval. Current support includes completion of phases 3 through 6, construction plans and construction staking. Total project build out is for approximately 395 residential units. Work is ongoing.
Maynard’s restaurant is located in Silverdale, WA. It was developed on 2.67 acres of land. The development conditions for this site plan included construction of a 10,000 square foot full service restaurant with associated parking and landscaping. Provisions were made for a future distillery and outdoor space for a farmers market and community events.
WSE was the civil engineer and surveyor on the project, working with the owner to verify project feasibility before the land purchase and continued through the preparation of final civil plans and construction. Evaluated conceptual site plans, wetland issues, road frontage improvements, adjacent property developments, and storm drainage analysis. The drainage analysis confirmed that there was downstream capacity and that on-site detention or retention was not required. This reduced development costs significantly. LID BMPs were implemented for water quality treatment.
WestSound Engineering, Inc. obtained site plan approval and construction approval for this small office building located in north Kitsap County. We also coordinated the preparation of a boundary line adjustment to create the required lot size for this project. Our knowledge of the adjacent improvements and development history of adjacent parcels was critical to document compliance with storm drainage, access, and site plan requirements.
A new 10,000 square foot building was constructed on property recently donated to Olympic College by the Bremer Trust. WestSound Engineering, Inc. was the civil engineering sub consultant to Rice Fergus Miller Architects for this project. Design work included site grading to accommodate the structure and to create interactive play areas, relocation of communication and electrical utilities, site drainage, and extension of water and sanitary sewer. WSE prepared technical sections for the bid documents and assisted with construction inspections. WSE also assisted with the LEED certification process to meet the LEED silver standards.
The Port of Bremerton negotiated an agreement with a private developer to build a commercial building on Port property. WestSound Engineering, Inc. prepared a revised site plan to accommodate a different building configuration than was originally permitted. This increased the building square footage and expanded the use of the site, including redesign of the site grading, access and utilities. Coordination with the City of Bremerton provided for a relocation of the fencing at their water storage tanks. At the request of the Port, low impact development features were added to reduced paved areas, add rain gardens and provide for pervious cement concrete paving in the parking area.
Parking lot retaining walls at two locations had failed at the Olympic College campus. WestSound Engineering, Inc., prepared the plans, special provisions, and provided site inspections for the replacement of these walls. Improvements included regrading and re-paving of the parking lots, handrails, storm drainage conveyance and traffic control plans.
The City of Bremerton placed this 11.4-acre residential site up for sale for redevelopment into a commercial retail use. WestSound Engineering, Inc.
provided a feasibility study and cost estimate for the Parr Auto Group during the bid preparation. We prepared applications and obtained permits for site plan approval, special use permit, a special exemption, NPDES permit, WSDOT utility permit, and plan approval for on-site and off-site improvements. Offsite improvements included mass grading of WSDOT right of-way and City of Bremerton property to include a 700-foot long biofiltration swale and a regional stormwater detention pond. Oyster Bay Avenue was improved over a 1700 -foot length with curb, gutter, sidewalk, street lighting, storm drainage, rockeries and left turn lane. The new centerline of construction alignment was coordinated with the City to maintain access to existing driveways and preserve existing utilities. The street profile was changed as much as 10 vertical feet. Approximately 900 feet of 66-inch diameter culvert was placed underneath the SR 3 right-of-way to improve storm drainage and eliminate grade hazards. On- site improvements included over 120,000 cubic yards of earthwork and 23,000 square feet of retaining wall. WestSound Engineering, Inc. prepared design plans, specifications and engineer's estimates for site utility demolition, grading, drainage, sanitary sewer, water main, paving and striping. We also attended weekly owner meetings and subcontractor meetings prior to and during site construction to assure project success.
