We are excited to announce the acquisition of Vision Engineering & Planning, a transportation planning and engineering DBE firm with offices in Columbia, MD and Atlanta, GA.
When tackling site engineering projects in urban settings, such as downtown Birmingham, the areas we’re working on typically have been developed multiple times in the past. This means that they frequently involve environmental remediation or rehabilitation. Redevelopment of these old sites is a very sustainable approach for planning a project or revitalizing a city. As we focus on sustainable design, cleaning up and improving sites in decayed urban areas can be a real benefit to the community and environment.
One of the biggest government projects Sain Associates has been involved in is the Martin Army Community Hospital in Ft. Benning, Georgia. The state of the art facility will provide health care to more than 90,000 soldiers, family members and retirees.
When it comes to due diligence, the sooner we do our front-end homework, the better off the project may be. While some developers may want to pinch pennies in the beginning of a project, early due diligence often requires only a small amount of money that’s well spent because it helps us flush out issues up front.
We are pleased to introduce our newest team member to Sain Associates, Caitlin Williams. Caitlin started work in July and is the newest designer in our Site Engineering Department.
When we start talking about storm water run-off and related regulations, most people’s eyes glaze over pretty quickly. But it’s an area of expertise for Sain Associates, and one that’s important in our Site Engineering division.
Sain Associates was busy this summer working on two large site engineering projects – Von Braun IV at Redstone Arsenal and what was called “Project Deepsouth” until a couple of weeks ago.
