Southwest Park is a new one-acre city park that incorporates the delay and store components of the Rebuild by Design approach. Following the city’s Green Infrastructure Strategic Plan, Langan designed and prepared the stormwater management for this park. We designed a system to hold the equivalent of a 10-year storm volume through green stormwater infrastructure components, including bioswales and rain gardens to mitigate existing flooding within this area of the city. Langan is the Licensed Site Remediation Professional for the project and has provided the necessary environmental controls while maintaining the design intent. Langan has also provided geotechnical engineering services and worked with the team to provide cost effective design alternatives by incorporating light-weight fill material to eliminate the need for piles.
