Civil Engineering for Residential Pocket Neighborhood
Wilcox & Barton, Inc. provided civil engineering
services to design and permit this new eight-unit residential pocket
neighborhood while also preserving the former Governor Rollins Mansion and
carriage house for an office and live/work use. Wilcox & Barton, Inc.
provided zoning support to obtain variances from the Zoning Board of
Adjustment. We designed site layout, grading, utility extensions and service
connections, as well as stormwater controls.
Of particular note in this project was our comprehensive drainage solution for the pocket neighborhood and upgradient properties. Through a reduction in impervious area, implementation of multiple infiltration practices (including drip edges and bioretention swales) and underground detention, we were able to control stormwater and reduce the burden on the municipal stormwater system.
