- A vision spearheaded by the President of Goodwin College, Goodwin purchased a large parcel of land along the Connecticut River.
- The existing site was a tank farm and transfer facility with significant levels of contamination.
- Goodwin College chose to demolish the tank farm, clean up the site, and construct its flagship 5-story 109,000 sq. ft. main campus building
- Our team was given the tasks of facility decommissioning, investigation, cleanup, site survey and design and town, State and federal permitting.
- Specific tasks included:
Preparation of a boundary and topographic survey
• Bulk fuel storage tank decommissioning
• Environmental investigations and remediation
• Site grading, utility design
• Design of access roadway and traffic circulation
• Traffic and site lighting design, landscaping,
• Design of an extensive stormwater collection system to accommodate future expansion of the College.
• New sewer and gas lines were extended to the project site.
- The project also included the design of more than 2,000 linear feet of campus roadways and improvements at the intersection of Ensign Street with Riverside Drive.
- Campus parking lots to accommodate more than 450 vehicles.
- Zuvic Carr worked closely with the project architect to design landscaping and a sidewalk network that would best fit the site layout.
- Since the completion of this flagship building in 2008, Goodwin College has continued to rely on Zuvic Carr to provide environmental and engineering support for the College.
- In 2012, Goodwin College received the EPA Environmental Merit Award for the Campus associated with site cleanup and redevelopment.
- ZUVIC was instrumental in helping Goodwin College receive a $600,000 grant for environmental cleanup.
