A&O provided civil-site design services for two phases of an expansion project for this growing church in Cary. In Phase I, a 22,500 square-foot building was constructed on 10.5 acres. A&O prepared schematic, design development, and construction documents to meet the Town of Cary’s Land Development Ordinance and gain approval from the Town for construction. Zoned residential, the property required stormwater management documentation and nitrogen export loading calculations. Stormwater control measures (SCMs) were required to mitigate the nitrogen export within the Neuse River Basin. The site plans were reviewed and approved by the Town of Cary and NCDOT. An NCDOT right-of-way encroachment agreement was required to construct improvements to Chapel Hill Road.

In Phase II, we provided civil-site design to further develop the 10.5-acre site. Phase II includes a new 14,400 square foot building for worship, offices and educational space. The project included widening Chapel Hill Road, the addition of Allen Lewis Drive, a bio-retention pond, a dry detention pond, and underground piped storm drainage. The SCMs were designed to accommodate a future building project when the need for further expansion is realized. The Town of Cary, North Carolina Department of Transportation and the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality Division of Water Resources were the reviewing agencies.
