Manhard Consulting was retained to provide complete civil engineering & survey services for this site featuring over 626,000 sf building on +/-225 acres of a master planned business park located at 1750 Bridge Drive in Waukegan, Illinois.
Existing office complex dating back to the 1950’s when the development of the park started. Variety of underground utilities and challenges throughout construction and design including expansion of a man-made lake for detention.
Achieving a balance for earthwork on the site, reuse of existing materials on site by crushing asphalt and concrete from previous buildings, pre and post construction BFE analyses reviewed and approved by Lake County SMC, saved the client $1,000,000 dollars by excluding isolated wetlands through extensive research to find previously issued permits.
A 90 acre foot lake in the middle of the site with bike path and various green infrastructure and BMPs associated with each individual lot as they are developed.
