Élan was the lead civil engineer for a 149,735 sf Readiness Center Complex for the Army National Guard. The site includes 526 POV parking lot that is designed to blend with the existing site topography, as well as the existing wetlands. In addition to the parking lot, the site plan will include an access drive connecting the parking area to Hamline Avenue, sidewalks for pedestrian movement, a loading dock, service area within a secured fence, as well as proper fire truck access. Design of the grading and drainage system will work integrally with the parking lot layout and landscape design to give flexibility to earthwork and optimize the stormwater management features. The project is pursuing LEED Silver Certification.
