Raising the Bar for Our Clients

What to Expect From ADC’s Civil Engineering Design Team

1. Exceptional Project Coordination

Managing a project with multiple owners, clients, and agencies is a challenge, but ADC coordinates between all stakeholders to ensure the project is a success and all parties are satisfied.

ADC provided the master plan for a 126-acre site that includes a reconstructed middle school, an existing high school, a new library and future Center for Advanced Studies to be used by the high school. There are two owners and three architect firms representing the different projects, but ADC was chosen to be the only civil engineering firm.

During the design process ADC recognized there was not road that would safely accommodate buses or pedestrian traffic. ADC coordinated a joint application from the city, the school district, and the county libraries to the county transportation department to approve a roadway improvement project that benefited the entire community by providing safer school and pedestrian circulation. ADC’s involvement early in the project saved money and ensured the community’s safety.

2. Proactive & Accommodating Project Leadership

ADC doesn’t just do the bare minimum to keep a project moving. We constantly seek out opportunities to go above and beyond to accommodate the client’s needs.

A local car dealership wanted to renovate and expand a dated facility. ADC saw an opportunity to design a project that the owner didn’t even know was possible. The project became a major overhaul of the entire property and a highly visible dealership with state-of-the-art facilities and a significant increase in car inventory and display area was created. The renovation was beyond the owner’s and a detailed phasing plan avoided interrupting operations during construction.

ADC developed a three-phase site construction approach to avoid interrupting operations during construction. The owner was pleased with a renovation that was beyond his original expectations and maintaining operations is always a priority to a business like a car dealership.

3. Unmatched Technical Expertise & Creative Solutions

Civil engineering projects present unique challenges, but ADC has the practical knowledge and experience necessary to propose sound solutions.

The US Army planned to build an Explosive Waste Incinerator (EWI) and Contaminated Waste Processing (CWP) facility in the mountain region of Virginia. The site is adjacent to a river and within a 100-year flood zone, so standard BMPs to improve water quality would have been the stormwater management solution.

However, a geotechnical investigation discovered karst in the region, making the site susceptible to sink holes. The threat of sink holes and the site’s limited space eliminated the ability to use many of the standard BMPs. With the project’s viability at stake, ADC’s civil engineering design team went to work on creating another alternative.

The team was able to design a treatment system for the stormwater management ponds that prevented the creation of sinkholes. The required stormwater quantity and quality requirements were ultimately achieved through ADC’s new treatment system combined with other site BMPs.
