Environmental Resolutions, Inc. (ERI) provided survey and site engineering design services for the new Municipal Building and Public Library on Union Street in Medford Township, Burlington County. ERI provided site design, including parking lot layout, site lighting, landscaping, brick pavers, sanitary sewer design, and stormwater management design. ERI also obtained the necessary permits from the Pinelands Commission and Burlington County Soil Conservation District.
Required surveying and soil testing were performed for this project to determine the best location for all site improvements, including location for the Municipal Building. The site work was designed keeping with the historic look of downtown Medford, including the proposed sidewalks, signs, and the site brick work. The site was designed with barrier-free accessibility, from Union Street to the front door, and sidewalks and accessible ramps throughout the site have been designed in accordance with ADA requirements. Drainage calculations were completed, and the storm system was modeled to meet all Pinelands and State regulations. Engineering plans and specifications were prepared and the necessary permits received.
ERI recommended an Environmental Site Investigation and worked with a subconsultant to perform a geophysical survey to identify underground storage tanks or other subsurface features. In addition, ERI collected soil samples to check for TCL SVOC, arsenic and lead. ERI conducted an investigation of the property for Historically Applied Pesticides based on previous agricultural use of the property and confirmed no pesticides were identified, eliminating the need for expensive remediation.
ERI provided engineering oversight and inspection of all site work for the on-going construction phase of the project. ERI is also supporting the landscape installation, which was designed specifically for ease of maintenance and to be Pinelands-friendly. Along with engineering oversight/inspection, ERI staff attended any required meetings with the County, Township, construction management firm, and contractor.
