Manhard Consulting assisted R+L Carriers to improve their existing service center located at 4204 IH 10 Frontage Road in San Antonio, Texas through a full-service effort. The project was initiated from a concept site plan from the client which quickly required due diligence studies and site planning to maximize the property’s use. Once the site plan was finalized, Manhard completed the final engineering design and secured permits through multiple agencies at both the local and state level.

During the permitting stage, it was determined that a particular scope of the improvements would require entitlements work. Manhard led the effort and revised the drawings to strategically show the improvement as future, which allowed the critical path construction to continue. Once all permits were secured, the rezoning process was initiated and ultimately successful after several months of cooperation with the city and surrounding residents.

Upon approval of the engineering plans, Manhard’s expertise was required to assist R+L Carriers and the general contractor in developing a phasing plan that would allow operations to continue, with minimal disruption, throughout the duration of construction. Despite the complex schedule, permitting, phasing, and entitlements, the project was a success and R+L Carriers is continuing to serve the San Antonio market from this facility.
