Collins provided site/civil engineering services including preparation of plans and contractor coordination and construction administration services for approximately 2.5 miles of roadway replaced with permeable pavers within the Assembly Park subdivision in Delavan, Wisconsin.
Assembly Park, located on Delavan Lake, is a community of over 200 residential properties. The existing asphalt roadway was deteriorating and needed repairs, and caused stormwater runoff to flow directly into Delavan Lake due to the lack of a storm sewer collection and detention system. The runoff also caused flooding and erosion problems.
The Delavan Lake Assembly (DLA) was prepared to improve the conditions and the use of permeable pavers to address the stormwater issue had been suggested by their contractor. The DLA brought Collins on board to provide design services, obtain permitting approvals, and prepare bid documents containing plans and specifications for the site improvements, all within the three-month time frame allotted.
Collins provided civil engineering design of an innovative, multi-purpose, improved roadway system for the residents of Assembly Park. The improvements are unique to a roadway system of this size in the State of Wisconsin. With the completion of this project, tremendous value has been added to the Assembly Park community for its residents and their properties, and stormwater runoff quality has been improved for Delavan Lake and its natural surroundings.
