McFadden Engineering’s roots run deep in the state of Alabama, as the premier civil and environmental engineering firm in Mobile. In our latest site development projects, McFadden Engineering’s engineers worked alongside construction professionals to develop the scope, program and design of a few facility projects, of various sizes. From facility expansion and parking lot upgrades and drainage to site design services and irrigation system designs. Our engineers facilitated the permitting process and evaluation of each part of the project––from conception to occupancy. Read more to learn about our recent design build projects.
Facility Expansion Project: Threaded Fasteners, Inc.
McFadden Engineering helped Threaded Fasteners, Inc. (TFI) with their facility expansion project. TFI acquired a 4.50-acre parcel to the east of its existing manufacturing facility. To allow for further expansion of the manufacturing facility and the addition of a galvanizing facility, McFadden assisted TFI with site design and layout, grading, drainage design and the design of a detention facility that would allow for future expansion.
This project consisted of major site work to compensate for a 15-foot elevation drop between the existing facility and new property. In addition, a drainage plan was implemented, which included filling the existing detention pond area at its current location and expanding TFI’s current material laydown yard area. McFadden Engineering also assisted the site contractor with implementation of erosion control measures and ADEM permit compliance.
Parking and Drainage Upgrade: Bay City Free Will Baptist Church
Bay City Free Will Baptist (Bay City), a growing church in Semmes, Alabama, needed a parking lot upgrade, along with a newly developed drainage system. McFadden Engineering helped develop a commercial site plan design that provided Bay City with 70 new parking spaces and a detention pond to capture stormwater runoff from the parking lot. In addition, culvert pipes for the two existing access driveways to the church were upgraded to meet Mobile County specifications.
Civil Engineering Maintenance: Mobile Memorial Gardens
Since 1990, McFadden Engineering has been the consulting engineer for Mobile Memorial Gardens. For the last three decades, McFadden has performed numerous projects for the gardens such as civil site design services, design of irrigation systems, design of stormwater control structures, development of a GIS mapping system for the Gardens infrastructure, and design of wastewater disposal systems. More recently McFadden used GIS services to develop a boundary and plot layout for the proposed Veterans Garden, provided engineering services for a sewage pump design and construction at the facility and provided engineering and permitting services for expansion of the maintenance building at the facility.
Our projects––whether large or small––are all handled with the same priority and consistency. Our team works closely with regulatory agencies to bridge the gap between permitting and compliance issues, so that each step of the project flows smoothly––from start to finish.
We understand that project development entails a lot of moving parts, including new information, regulations, compliance, scheduling errors and more. If you don’t have a full grasp of the design build process, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
