Arcadia University Grounds Building Improvements

G&A provided multi-disciplinary engineering services for a new maintenance facility and associated improvements.  A significant project component involved a new culvert spanning a tributary of the Tookany Creek, historically separating the area from the remaining campus.  An existing pipe conveyance limited vehicular access and created a bottleneck in the stream, with associated backwater flooding.   G&A performed a hydraulic analysis and developed streambank restoration plans for wider access to the maintenance area, eliminating flooding and establishing riparian protections. Stormwater management features include a rain garden, underground detention bed, and green roof.
