American Engineering designed a signature 100 unit upscale subdivision in the South Charlotte area. The project not only included a extremely fast-paced design, in a prestigious new neighborhood, but will include the roadway design of the extension of Ardrey Kell Road. The project includes tying into Ardrey Kell Road extension and Tilley Morris Road.
This subdivision is one of several American Engineering is designing throughout the Carolinas.
American Engineering’s staff was selected by Figg Bridge Engineering to do the approach roadway design on the South Norfolk Jordan Bridge. This complex projects honors our long standing experience and ability in civil engineering design and surveying . The west side approach is through a Superfund site; the east side has serious vertical geometry challenges. We set horizontal, vertical and cross-section geometrics for not only the approach roadways but the bridge itself.
American Engineering is serving Brackett Flagship Properties in the development of a 28,000 sf medical office building for one of the top medical practices in the country – Carolina Orthopaedic. Our team performed civil engineering design, planning, landscape architecture on a complex four acre property in Gaston County, NC. The site design required navigating a property with 30 feet of grade change which would also accommodate a very high parking ratio requirement. Construction was completed in July 2014.
American Engineering provided services for the South Corridor Infrastructure Program (SCIP), which included the design of infrastructure improvements to improve pedestrian and vehicle access around light-rail stations and to promote transit-oriented development.
The project included field surveys, conceptual designs, preliminary and final engineering documents, public involvement, and real estate acquisition services for roadway, drainage, water and sewer, landscaping, and park projects.
As the prime consultant, we led a group of five major consulting firms. The consultant group worked as a team, in conjunction with a city project manager and six city departments. As a result of this effort, 71 projects were consolidated into 25 design packages for the development of construction plans for a variety of multi-modal transportation improvements.
This landmark feature was designed and constructed in the mid-‘90s, and started as a drainage project. American Engineering’s staff solved the complex drainage issues, but the design included dredging the lake, improving the bulkhead and replacing the timber pedestrian bridge with concrete. The complexity of the project did not keep us from bringing the construction in on budget. What was necessary as an infrastructure improvement, doubles as a wonderful asset to the South Norfolk community.
