Oak Terrace Preserve
Davis & Floyd redesigned a network of seven neighborhood pocket parks. The team utilized a plant palette of native plants to complement low impact development (LID) practices.
They conducted thorough field investigations and modeling to determine optimal water and wastewater system configurations and which old lines to connect to or abandon. The design included approximately 1,500’ of 12” water main, 9,000’ of 6” water main, and associated valves and fire hydrants and approximately 6,300’ of 8” sanitary sewer gravity main to replace existing aging system. Davis & Floyd used bioswales to drain public right-of-way and pervious alleyways to retain stormwater runoff from homesites. The team obtained permits efficiently (SCDHEC Water & Wastewater Construction Permits, OCRM Land Disturbance Permit, OCRM Coastal Zone Consistency Certification, and City of North Charleston MS4 Approval), minimizing delays to start of construction.
