Challenges
  • 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
Solutions
  • 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.
Highlights
  • 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.
