The University of North Carolina Hospitals (UNCH) Hillsborough campus is a community hospital that serves as an extension of the main UNC Medical Center. Currently the Campus features a two-story hospital, a medical office building, four multi-story bed wings and associated access, parking and utility infrastructure. The Hospital is part of the larger Waterstone Development near downtown Hillsborough.
We were there from the very beginning of this project and have provided multiple engineering services throughout its construction. We provided geotechnical engineering, subsurface investigations, construction materials testing, surveying, civil/site layout and engineering design services. We produced the site plan package, Special Use Permit application and design narrative required for site plan approval by the Town of Hillsborough for the medical facility. Satisfied with our work, UNCH has invited us back since to work on multiple expansions to the campus, including the medical office building. The project ultimately consists of four phases, with more expansions expected as the hospital grows.
Our Land Development, Surveying and Geomatics, and Construction Materials Testing departments all worked together to provide site design, permitting and other vital services for the development and construction of the Discovery Charter School in Durham County, NC. The facility consists of four 10,500 square foot classroom buildings, and one 12,000 square-foot gymnasium, all connected by a large network of sidewalks.
We are the current Architect of Record for the State Employees' Credit Union. Our architecture team developed three (3) new prototypes for North Carolina locations ranging from 6,500 square feet to 10,000 square feet. Each location requires different services and different qualifications which meant our teams quickly learned how to adapt to our client’s needs on the ground.
The Orange County ABC project consisted of designing and constructing a new, 14,250-square-foot warehouse and upfitting the existing office building. This location serves as the storage and central distribution point for all Orange County ABC locations, so it needed to fulfill both its warehouse functions and the necessary office functions in a fast-paced, demanding environment.
