Burgess & Niple (B&N) was awarded an engineering contract for more than $1 million to design a major land development project, Piedmont South, in Haymarket, Virginia. B&N provided complete preliminary and final engineering, land surveying, transportation design, stormwater management services, and floodplain studies for this 177-acre, 900-unit residential community.
Transportation services consisted of design of 5,000 linear feet of divided roadway with superelevation. B&N provided engineering design for numerous internal roads throughout the subdivision, as well as drainage, erosion control, stormwater management, and landscaping. Water system modeling, complete infrastructure design, and floodplain studies also were provided.
The project encompasses single-family detached homes, townhouse units, a multifamily apartment complex, and a community center. B&N completed preliminary engineering in March 2001; final engineering was completed in 2002. B&N involved staff from its offices in Woodbridge, Dulles, and Virginia Beach, Virginia; Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio; and Indianapolis, Indiana.
The Piedmont South project was marketed under the name "The Parks at Piedmont." The project is adjacent to an existing project by KSI Services called "Piedmont." B&N previously provided engineering and surveying services for three sections of Piedmont.
