Challenging projects that allowed our expertise to shine
InSite and Traverse Landscape Architects successfully coordinated, designed, and permitted a new synthetic turf field for Whittier Regional Vocation High school. The new state of the art, 80,000 square feet facility replaces the original track and grass field at the school. The new turf with a sand/rubber infill and shock pad provides an even playing surface for multiple sports. The new eight lane electronically timed track allows for regional meets to be held at the school.
InSite provide a full existing condition and boundary survey for the property, provided full site engineering including an extensive underground drainage system to infiltrate and control all storm events. The project team successfully developed plans and coordinated the design of the project with City of Haverhill. InSite provided construction layout, construction oversite, inspections, testing, and closeout of the project. The project met all time frame requirements and project budgets.
InSite provided all site civil, survey and permitting for the project. The survey tasks for the project included boundary, existing conditions, utility research, and ALTA survey for lending institutions.
Working with the project team, there was heavy site coordination with architect and MEP engineers on the layout and utilities on this very tight site. Site design included new utilities, unique and innovative stormwater design including raised bioretention areas and pervious pavers to meet stringent Narragansett Bay Commission and RIDEM stormwater requirements.
The stormwater design had to factor in that the majority of the site is contaminated site and had to maintain capping requirements on site.
Insite also assisted the client to obtain a new sewer connection as well as wastewater discharge permit for the brewery operations through the Narragansett Bay Commission.
Cranston, Rhode Island
InSite provided site planning for the 20,000 S.F. mausoleum in the heart the cemetery. We provided site layout, utility design and storm water measures including bioretention, infiltration ponds, and underground infiltration systems that met all RIDEM requirements, as well as provided an aesthetically pleasing design. An OWTS system was also designed for the building.
The new mausoleum was designed to reflect the Providence cathedral with twin towers on the exterior, internal chapel, and 35’ cathedral ceilings. There are 3,150 crypts and 430 niches internal of structure and 2,500 crypts and 550 niches locates on the exterior. The project is currently in mid-construction and is to be completed in two phases. Stay tuned for more as the project continues to move to completion.
Newport, Rhode Island
InSite and Birchwood Design Group successfully coordinated, designed, and permitted a new synthetic turf field for Salve Regina University and City of Newport. The 2.5 million, 200,000 sf field was designed, permitted, and built in four months; in time for the opening day football game.
InSite provided a full existing conditions and boundary survey for the property, provided site engineering including an extensive underground drainage system to infiltrate and control all storm events. The project team successfully developed plans and coordinated the design/build of the project with RIDEM, City of Newport, Salve Regina University, and site contractor. The project met all time frame requirements and project budgets.
Warwick, Rhode Island
Since 1902 AAA has assisted the American public with their automotive needs. Today AAA services over 50 million customers with 10 million in the Northeast alone. The growing client base has required AAA Northeast to expand the existing facilities in the market place.
InSite has worked with the project team to assist AAA in the reuse of a historic 40,000 sf mill in the heart of Warwick located on Centerville Road. The
building will be the new AAA Northeast branch operations with office, training, and support services.
InSite provided survey and drone scanning of site and building for preplanning of the site. Flood plain and site constraints required innovative site planning and stormwater management including uses of bio-retention areas and rain gardens throughout the site. A special permit and site plan approval will be obtained from the Warwick Planning Board as well as stormwater approval through RIDEM. IES is assisted with the subdivision and purchase of adjacent State of Rhode Island land.
Barrington, Rhode Island
InSite Engineering has provided all site/civil engineering, surveying and environmental services
for multiple improvement projects in conjunction
with St. Andrew’s Campus Master Plan.
These include an expanded Student Center, renovation and expansion of Gardiner Dining Hall, a new conference center, improvements to recreational and athletic areas, access roadway and expanded parking throughout the site. Low Impact Design (LID) and stormwater improvements were developed within the campus to alleviate drainage and flooding issues. InSite has also completed a full ALTA survey of the 80 acre campus.
InSite provided new parking, access, utilities, grading and drainage plans, surveying and construction administration for two multi-million dollar dormitory projects, Cady House and Bill’s House. A quality and collaborative effort was necessary to meet the aggressive 6 month construction schedule and tight constraints within the site
InSite Engineering will provide all site/civil engineering, surveying and environmental services for CALAMAR - one of largest senior living developers in the US - and their newest building in Taunton, MA. The project, located on 18.3 acres of land, will create 131 senior housing units located in a single three story building.
InSite is working with the project team to conceptualize and develop all construction documents for the project. InSite Engineering will provide an ALTA survey of property, provide full site engineering including Low Impact Design (LID) stormwater design, sewage pump station design, water pump stations, and landscaping including community gardens, walking paths, landscaped gardens throughout the site.
Cumberland, Lincoln, Smithfield, RI
InSite Engineering is surveying an 8 mile section of Route 116 in Cumberland, Lincoln and Smithfield for the Rhode Island Department of Transportation. Through the use of both RTK GNSS technology and traditional traverse, Class I survey recovered boundary lines in an area not surveyed in over 50 years and having an extended corridor width of 300 feet in sections.
RIDOT will be utilizing the information gathered for a corridor study focusing on the determination of state highway layout and land use of abutting property owners. This work is part of a pilot program to implement GIS data cross platforms - a “Map it once; use it many times” approach.
