Bayer Becker completed engineering and site planning for a proposed 9,000 square foot addition to the Beechwood School campus in Ft. Mitchell, Kentucky. This project included a number of challenges that were completed in an extraordinarily quick time frame so that construction of improvements would not interfere with school’s schedules and operations. Bayer Becker worked extensively with the school and their architect to facilitate design of a new parking facility to be constructed during summer months but also be coordinated to work as the prime drop-off and pick-up area for students during construction of the new wing, and, after its completion. Bayer Becker also provided a detailed “Autoturn” analysis to ensure clearances and accessibility for school buses, delivery trucks, and parking movements.
In addition, Bayer Becker provided a detailed storm water analysis to ensure proper drainage around the new addition and to properly handle roof runoff and window well drains. Bayer Becker also provided a detailed study of the locations of existing utilities in the vicinity. Our team worked closely with the owner and local utility companies to account for the extensive number of underground utilities in order to avoid conflicts during construction and ensure uninterrupted service to the existing building. Bayer Becker also worked closely with the MEP consultants for installation of a geothermal well field to be located in the parking area, adding another layer of complexity to the site layout. Our engineers also assisted the project architect with site work specifications.
