We worked with K&M's operations so that their business was able to be fully operational during construction.

5 Acre Parking Lot Reconstruction
Due to unstable soils as a trucking/storage facility, the parking lot necessitated reclaiming of the pavement and a redesign of material depths. Using geotextiles to help reinforce the area helped minimize costs in lieu of additional excavation and material depths. Their business operates 24 hours a day, 7 days and week; therefore, it was important to minimize disruption. We developed a plan to phase the work around the site’s busiest times and areas.
6 Acres of Roadway Reconstruction
The cemetery roadways entailed a major reconstruction with stormsewer catchbasin repairs and deteriorated clay piping. Based on varying conditions of pavements, some roadways were reclaimed and others resurfaced. Just in time for Memorial Day.

Rethinking The Parking Lot
As a company that designs and installs both paving and ecological landscaping projects, we make use of conventional methods and, whenever possible, alternative techniques that mitigate stormwater runoff. We have a passion for protecting one of our greatest resources, water, and thoughtful construction is a big part of this goal.
Townhome Complex Celebrating and Interactive with Rainwater
This townhome association was planning on redoing the roadway and driveways and wanted to consider an earth-friendly approach. Once a very commercial feeling with no gathering spaces the site was redesigned for narrower roadways, permeable parking areas, several raingardens, curbing and a wonderful communal gathering space.
100 Car Parking Lot Redesign
Altering the grades of the parking lot for stormwater treatment provides a unique look to what had been another big, expansive lot of asphalt. These four planters are positioned along the center of the lot to receive all the parking lot runoff. The water then filters through well-draining soils and native plants before overflowing into a suspended draintile that is connected to the city catch basin.

Church Parking Lot Rethink
Despite poor subsoils and high water table, this originally large unattractive parking lot that now welcomes members and guests. Filtering stormwater through well-designed practices makes this site functional and aesthetically beneficial.
Coop members redesigned the building and decided to continue the light footprint to the outer palette. An asphalt parking lot, structural concrete poured wall, turfstone pavers, cistern and a raingarden compliment the site beautifully.
