Survey for a Maintenance Facility

KL Engineering completed the site design and survey for the development of a maintenance facility that services the Quilt Block Wind site in the Darlington Industrial Park. The site was undeveloped with significant topographic relief.

Project challenges included:

  • Determining the floor elevation of the building to balance excavation.
  • Locating and designing functional driveways for passenger and maintenance vehicles.
  • Development of a parking lot layout that met the facility’s needs.

KL Engineering performed the following tasks:

  • Design tasks included grading, drainage, stormwater control, and erosion control plans.
  • Preparation of a stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) for the site adhering to Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) requirements.
  • Completion of a spill prevention control and countermeasure (SPCC) for the site according to State of Wisconsin requirements.
  • Coordination with the owner in Colorado and the prime contractor in Texas was important to the success of the project, which was completed on a compressed schedule.
