Owner Objective

The City of Martinsburg, West Virginia was looking to repair the deteriorating parking lot of their fire station headquarters, including a complete renovation of the concrete parking and drive aisles, site drainage corrections with proper tie-in to existing stormwater infrastructure, and updating security fencing and gate systems to current safety standards.

CEC Approach

Our team provided the city with conventional survey and drone-captured Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) services to accurately determine site conditions and provide the framework for the best possible design baseline. The existing concrete parking lot was deteriorated and cracked throughout, allowing for water pooling and infiltration into the parking lot subbase. This caused uneven surfaces – raising the risk to pedestrians. To improve site conditions and allow for proper drainage, we implemented new stormwater infrastructure for collection and conveyance and proposed grades to meet those structures while also maintaining American Disability Act compliance.

In addition to design services, CEC provided construction inspection and coordination services on behalf of the City of Martinsburg on an on-call basis. We coordinated with city officials, including the fire chief, to provide a product that met their needs without disrupting the station’s normal operations. CEC was able to engineer a solution to the subsurface conditions. When the existing subgrade material on site was discovered and initially determined to be unsuitable, we were able to come to a geotechnical determination and solution that led to substantial cost savings for the city.
