Designing with the world in mind
As prime, Page has delivered a wide variety of projects involving complex utility infrastructure utilizing both in-house resources, or in many cases, using out-of-house civil engineering firms. Projects in which we have served as prime have included: utility replacements within existing active right of ways; analyses and renovations of systems to accommodate new demands; extension of services to project sites; services for compact urban zero lot sites;
and distribution networks for new and existing campuses. We have utility system experience including: water, wastewater, gas, telecom and IT, storm, and thermal utilities.
Master Plan And Site Development
Urban design, economic development, transportation, stormwater and green infrastructure are melded with Owner inputs and building placement to develop for our clients the most desirable site layout in coordination with regulatory entities and a detailed analysis of site characteristics.
Municipal, commercial, residential and mixed-use projects require infrastructure services of varying intensity, specific to each population, based on zoning and economic use of each site. Community engineering design standards set the criteria for each use. Page coordinates with each stakeholder to locate their facilities, identify their existing availability, request extension, and to design to their standards to achieve project needs. From layout to project acceptance Page works with stakeholders through the project duration to clarify, trouble shoot, and assist the Contractor.
Hydrology, Hydraulics, Drainage & Stormwater Management
Review site rainfall and site run-off with calculation of pre- and post- development peak flow for use in management of critical drainage facilities. Design systems that convey, detain, and treat stormwater runoff in order to mitigate potential site and community impacts. Review and perform river flood studies.
Street And Highway Design
Map topography and existing facilities including finish floor elevations and utilities to coordinate new infrastructure under flatwork. Provide plan and profiles of new utilities in the public right-of-way (ROW). Generate concepts for parking, landscaping, street furniture, lighting and accessibility to facilitate pedestrian activities or traffic predominately, where desired. Prepare street layouts, profiles and sections to match existing topography and
facilities and including location of meters, manholes, transformers, drives, approaches, bollards, inlets, hydrants, curb cuts, curbs and gutter, tire bumpers, accessible parking, sidewalks, accessible routes, irrigation, signals, signage and wayfinding for construction.
Water And Wastewater System Design
Depict existing systems to remain or be maintained during construction and design water distribution systems and wastewater collection systems and services that will supply water service, provide sewage collection, and provide fire protection throughout the project. Analyze sanitary sewer flows and provide pipe slope for proper self-cleaning velocities. Provide meters and backflow preventers in traffic rated vaults. Distribute hydrants throughout the project according to Fire Code. Obtain flow tests and use to calculate head losses and verify pipe size to achieve required fire flow to be provided at each structure.
City, State, And Federal Permitting
Identify governing agencies and stakeholders at project initiation to begin coordination and obtain timely authorization. These range from Municipal Utility Districts to cities to the EPA to community organizations. Page develops relationships early to coordinate directly with permitting personnel to move your project efficiently through approval.
