HALL & HALL ENGINEERS, INC.
Van Meter Industrial: Cedar Rapids, IA
While developing plans for the construction of a new warehouse facility, owners at Van Meter Industrial made a committed effort to involve designers that could help them achieve a LEED rated building and site. The project involved best management practices with stormwater retention, electric vehicle charging stations, and green architecture strategies. Native vegetation was utilized throughout the site to aid in accomplishing their LEED Gold status.
Civil engineering challenges with this project were based on a constrained site dimensions for semi-trailer turn-around and material handling. Our design developed a simple and clear layout that maximized the space available for safe and efficient truck maneuvering to import and export products.
