Williams & Works assisted the Lowell Area Recreation Authority (LARA) with the first phase of a master-planned, universally-accessible non-motorized transportation system serving the communities of Lowell Township, Vergennes Township and the City of Lowell.
This road reconstruction and widening project included design and construction engineering services. Included in the scope of the project were survey, utility coordination, roadway and utility design, flexible super-pavement design, complex traffic maintenance constraints, culvert drainage study, and MDEQ permit.
This project entailed installation of three new production wells with pitless adapters and construction of a wellhouse for the pump controls and valve assemblies. Geologic mapping and aquifer testing indicated a wedge-shaped, sand and gravel aquifer that required a complicated hydraulic analysis.
Phase I of Ottawa County's Park 12 project included waterfront improvements on Lake Macatawa, and Phase II extended the boardwalk along the shore of Lake Macatawa and replaced the existing shore line protection along the length of the County owned property.
Williams & Works was part of a team of consultants hired to address a variety of improvement projects around the campus of West Shore Community College. Projects ranged from improvements to existing parking lots, access drives, and the college's water supply system to new building construction and additions.
This multifacted project in the City of Kalamazoo included design survey, traffic study, public involvement, roadway and utility design, geotechnical engineering and pavement design, traffic signal design, street lighting, traffic maintenance, utility coordination, and assistance with right-of-way acquisition.
To meet the needs of a rapidly increasing population, Williams & Works designed a sequencing batch reactor facility for the Village of Kingsley after evaluating several options. Williams & Works also evaluated the possibility of designing an Aero-Mod plant as an alternative to increase bid competition, saving the Village approximately $500,000.
Williams & Works assisted the Village of Sparta with the development of a Wellhead Protection Program, which promotes local public awareness regarding the importance of groundwater protection and demonstrates a progressive attitude toward water supply protection. The Program will be an important component for land use planning and groundwater management in this area.
Services provided by Williams & Works included field survey, hydraulic analysis, MDEQ permit application, design, construction staking, construction inspection, and coordination of materials testing. The project was administered through the Michigan Department of Transportation’s 2006 Small Urban Program through the TEA 21 fund.
