Tradewinds Package Delivery Lot

Site Design & Civil Engineering – Design & Construction

Tradewinds Package Delivery Lot in Madison, Wisconsin

This parking facility includes 50 parking stalls, 31 box truck stalls, and 5 trailer truck stalls. The proposed stormwater treatment devices that will treat the paved surfaces include vegetative bioswales and dry bottom detention basins that were designed to fit within landscaped green space as required by ordinance. Also drainage of the parking lot was accomplished by surface drainage and eliminated the cost of underground storm pipes.

 KL Engineering addressed several challenges on the project, as follows:

  • Expedition of the design and permitting through City of Madison channels to meet deadlines
  • Permitting was accomplished to meet the timeline and was done in the midst of challenging coordination during COVID-19 environment restrictions
  • Coordination with City of Madison Zoning Department helped avoid the need for a conditional use approval
  • Working closely with the contractor was required to modify the grades and to limit import of materials, which in turn saving money for the owner

“KL Engineering did a great job navigating through the complicated approval process and kept us on schedule for a spring start. They listened to feedback from our site contractor and accommodated suggestions made by the field, which ultimately saved us money. They are easy to work with and I look forward to partnering on future projects”.
