Client: Brandywine School District
Date: February 21, 2017
To provide more efficient and safe access to the school, Brandywine School District decided to revise the school entrance, steps, sidewalks and pathways, add a student drop-off area, and revise the site circulation patterns. This project included the new student drop-off area on the side of the building, a student drop-off area for the pre-school students, and added parking to the front entrance driveway. The intention of these improvements is better site circulation and the reduction of pedestrian/vehicle conflicts. VanDemark & Lynch, Inc. provided planning, surveying, and civil engineering, including a topographic survey, with a hydrographic survey of the pond and it’s outlet control structures, design of access roads, parking lots, sidewalks, handicapped access, utility connections, and the service area. VanDemark & Lynch, Inc. provided plans and reports required by County and State regulations and technical specifications for the project manual. The design was complicated by existing underground gas and fiber optic lines, which required close integration of new underground utilities and other site features.
VanDemark & Lynch was selected to provide the planning, surveying, and civil engineering. We provided topographic and building surveys, located underground storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and water lines, designed the new access roads, parking lots, sidewalks, handicapped accessways, and other site features, and prepared technical specifications. We also prepared the required construction plans in accordance with City of Wilmington and State regulations.
