Project Details

The Spring Cove School District constructed three new athletic fields at their elementary campus. The project site is a 13.8-acre parcel and includes one baseball field, two new softball fields, and a parking lot.  For future development, Keller Engineers’ was asked to include, in the Master Plan, accommodations for press boxes, dugouts, bleachers, and a concession building. Three bioretention basins were designed and installed to manage runoff and future additional impervious.

Project Uniqueness/Challenges:  Significant amounts of off-site runoff from the north and south needed to be conveyed around the site to avoid an unnecessary increase in detention.  With no defined watercourse in which to discharge, Keller Engineers modified the stormwater approach to incorporate a set of stilling fore-bays and level spreaders to dissipate velocity before the water reaches the neighboring property.

We have teamed with Keller Engineers on several design-build projects for PennDOT. When selecting a designer, the more critical factors are trust and competence, more so than a low price. If your designer makes a mistake in quantities it can cost you a lot of money. We have stayed with Keller Engineers because we trust them to provide competent service at a competitive price.  S.
