Erdman Anthony provided stormwater management, environmental, utilities,
traffic, and construction observation services for the design-build construction
of Binks Forest Elementary School. The 15-acre site is located on the south
side of SR 80 at Ousley Farms Road. Although the site was in a platted area
with a previously constructed surface water management, a SFWMD permit and
modification was required to prove that the land use and grading assumptions
from the conceptual permit had been met. This was accomplished due to the
site’s high elevation; however, the conceptual permit did not provide any dry
pre-treatment as was required of this non-residential site. Therefore, a dry
detention pond was designed and constructed for the site.
Water and sewer were not available to the side, so off-site mains were
designed within the Bent Creek Road right-of-way to service the new building.
Gravity sewer was used to service the site, which included on site grease traps
from the cafeteria. Fire lines and domestic water lines were looped around the
building to improve water flow. Our staff prepared and processed the necessary
permits from the Village and Health Department.
Erdman Anthony coordinated closely with the site planning team and the local
municipality to mitigate environmental impacts. The selected site was nearly
covered in Native Florida Uplands, so approximately 20% of the site was set
aside as an upland preserve. An off-site roundabout was constructed at the
intersection of Bent Creek Road and Ousley Farms Road to enable a longer queue
for the parent drop off. This design helped minimize public concern regarding
traffic at the school site. Erdman Anthony provided construction observation
services to ensure that the plans and specifications were met, resulting in a
safe, modern new public school building.
