Riverside High School

Client(s): Loudoun County Public Schools

Location: Loudoun County, Virginia 

Project: Riverside High School

Description: Public High School

Project Elements: 
Urban provided services for entitlement and design of all improvements related to  Riverside  High  School.    Urban  initially assisted  LCPS during site  selection by preparing layouts, preliminary engineering and feasibility studies  on three potential sites for HS-8.  Once the  National Conference Center  (NCC) site  was selected by the Board of Supervisors,Urban prepared and gained approval of a Special Exception,a Zoning Concept Plan Amendment,two Construction Plans and Profiles for road improvements and a Site Plan for the school.

Urban  worked  closely  with LCPS to ensure  the  design  of the  site  honored Loudoun County's  many  environmental policy  constraints and the  Lansdowne Conservancy's  Design Guidelines without compromising elements required by LCPS's Educational Specifications. Urban  prepared plans  in coordination with the  NCC so that  access and  utility services  to the  NCC would be maintained throughout construction. Urban performed utility designations,survey locations, and relocation plans for a maze of mapped and unmapped utilities on the  NCC site. Urban  and its  subconsultant Davis Utility Consulting were able to design relocation plans that were executed by LCPS's contractor without disruption to the NCC campus.

The complexity of the  project required Urban  to prepare  contract documents showing six major phases  of construction, many  of  which  contained multiple sub-phases for specific tasks such as maintenance of traffic. We believe that  our dedication and commitment from project inception, to coordination with the multipie project stakeholders,to ourrole  during  Construction Administration have been instrumental in making the  Riverside  High School  project a reality, and could not have been equaledby any other civil engineering consultant.
