For the City of Casper, the problem was the reconstruction of a long-neglected urban corridor in need of streetscape enhancements and spur future redevelopment of the Old Yellowstone District. WWC determined design elements be staked and coordinated with the contractor in order to provide them with the guidance needed for construction. Completion of the project was instrumental in advancing the development of adjacent properties and renewed interest in the area.
For Yellowstone County and MetraPark, the problem was that infrastructure on the 165+ acre property had never been extensively mapped or assessed over its 90+ year history. As the infrastructure, including surfacing and utilities, is of varying ages and owners, the Client wished to determine an improvement plan and priority ranking for future projects. WWC realized that a stepwise approach to data collection was necessary to incorporate evidence of infrastructure identified in the field survey as well as empirical knowledge of infrastructure operations from Yellowstone County and MetraPark staff. Following data collection, WWC developed an objective approach to determining the current condition of infrastructure, to provide an unbiased assessment. WWC chose this approach to ensure that the maximum amount of information on existing infrastructure was collected during mapping activities and that the condition assessment was conducted to eliminate subjectivity that would decrease repeatability at a future time.
WWC re-platted properties to develop 55 patio home sites to meet City of Billings and Heights Water requirements for water, sanitary sewer, stormwater, and access. This property was also immediately adjacent to the Billings Bench Water Association (BBWA) main canal which was the ultimate location for stormwater drainage. Completion of the project required negotiation between City of Billings Fire Department and Heights Water in addition to negotiations with the BBWA to prohibit erosion of their banks due to stormwater discharges. Stormwater design for the project focused on risks associated with potential breaching of on-site ponds and discharge to the BBWA, additionally, site groundwater was near surface which limited pond volume vertically.
Sheridan's Main Street was shown signs of deterioration. Geotechnical drilling revealed that the pavement deterioration was only on the surface. The Wyoming Department of Transportation decided a rehabilitation project, replacing only the sidewalk, traffic signalization and curb and gutter in their entirety was necessary. These improvements to Main Street and the downtown area contributed to the City of Sheridan being awarded the American Planning Association’s 2008 National “Great Neighborhood” Award for being one of America’s “10 Great Neighborhoods.”
Dick Anderson Construction was the general contractor selected by the Owner to provide construction services for the Stillwater Wind Project; an 80 MW producing facility requiring 12 miles of road construction, 1,240 tons of rebar, consisting of 31 turbines. To comply with the Owner’s, manufacturers, and regulatory agency requirements, Dick Anderson Construction selected WWC Engineering to assist in the preparation of design drawings and analysis of project components, including potential floodplain impacts, SPCC, and turbine component mobilization to the Site.
