Quilt Block Wind Maintenance Facility in Darlington, Wisconsin

KL Engineering completed the site design and survey for 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 needs

KL Engineering performed the following tasks:

  • Design tasks included grading, drainage, stormwater control, and erosion control plans
  • Preparation of a Storm Water 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 prime contractor in Texas were important to the success of the project, which was completed on compressed schedule
