Lopez, with a 30-square mile area, is the third largest island in the San Juan archipelago and is the most rural of all the larger islands in the group. BRH was tasked to study beach erosion and provide a mitigation report for this Lopez Island site.
BRH supported the development of this 320-acre site. The scope included conducting flood and basin studies for a 6-acre detention pond draining the entire site. Drainage was designed to flow through grass-lined swales to the detention pond. This was the first...
Waterfront-related aspects for this mixed-use complex, on Westlake Avenue North, included temporary mixed-use, shoring permit support, and surface and sub-surface drainage design. BRH provided full scope civil engineering and land surveying services, including on and off-site components.
This neighborhood park off I-90 provides the Mercer Island community with swimming, picnicking, a BBQ area, and a children’s playground. BRH was tasked to provide a beach survey, plus a stormwater drainage report for this popular beachfront park.
BRH has served the Seattle Tennis Club with several requests for civil engineering. One recent project assisted the design team with grading and erosion control, drainage, and the installation of a ‘green’ stormwater system for their Lake Washington waterfront site.
BRH has provided stream and creek analysis on multiple sites around the Puget Sound region. These typically support environmental studies, bio-swale design, and stormwater downstream studies. Often the work is followed by a request for civil design adjacent to or related to the stream.
