Park 505 at Hardy
Park 505 at Hardy is a 534,000 SF warehouse building located on a 40.7-acre site in Harris County. For this area, the county typically requires a 1D flood study; however, due to unforeseen circumstances during the review process, the project required a more in-depth 2D study. In response, Langan completed a 2D unsteady flow flood analysis. By completing the study, Langan coordinated a reduction in earthwork for the removal of 16,000 cubic yards of soil destined for the landfill, saving the client time and money. The study also produced sustainable outcomes: the reduction in earthwork removed the need to haul soil off-site, saving approximately 1,000 truck trips worth of carbon emissions, and the stormwater management measures reduced base flood elevations for the surrounding area.
