Bayer Becker’s site design expertise was on full display with the Christ Hospital Medical Office Building. The project features a medical office building with both surface and underground parking as well as space for a second building. The site’s original topography dropped off sharply the further you traveled into the site. To develop the site, Bayer Becker designed and implemented a series of walls to help bring the sloping areas up to grade, allowing development to take place.
Bayer Becker’s design also included a first for Hamilton County. To design to the Ohio EPA’s standards and meet detention requirements at the same time, Stormtech shells were used in the design of the detention basin. By placing a fabric liner over a section of the shell, filtering was able to take place, meeting water quality standards. In addition to the Stormtech solution, Bayer Becker provided design for a 1,815 linear foot sanitary sewer extension along Harrison Avenue that delivered service to the site. Bayer Becker’s transportation engineers also provided design services including a new signal, turn lane and entrance along Harrison Avenue.
Before design even started, Bayer Becker’s knowledge of the area and its topography was an asset. Having provided designs for several projects in the area gave Bayer Becker an advantage. Our knowledge of the location’s regulations combined with our multi-discipline capabilities ensured a successful project for The Christ Hospital.
