MSA provided Civil Engineering consultant support to the Project Architect for construction phase services for a 5-story administration building. This phased project includes the partial demolition of two warehouses to create space for the new building, while maintaining existing work space for current staff. Our responsibilities include preparation of construction documents, specifications in SPECSINTACT, LEED documentation (certified LEED Silver by USGBC), and coordination with MEP, Structural and Architectural team members. This project meets EISA 438 for stormwater management and complies with current Virginia DEQ stormwater regulations. The Construction General Permit is required and was obtained through the VA DEQ.
Prior to performing this work with MSA, Matt Knightes was employed by the Project Architect and served as the Civil Engineering Project Manager for the design portion of the project. His responsibilities included design and approval of construction documents, specifications, and VA DEQ permitting. The design portion included LID stormwater features, multiple paved parking areas, a concrete service yard, underground utilities, outdoor plaza with trench drains, and concrete pedestrian walkways. Fire protection and utility coordination were designed to minimize impacts to adjacent occupied facilities during construction. During design, MSA coordinated with the owner for multiple nearby construction projects that were included in the construction documents.
