Suggesting alternatives, focused on value and safety
When clients are balancing the need for multiple retrofits against limited budgets, cost/benefit considerations become paramount. WithersRavenel understands project prioritization within Capital Improvement Plans and often helps to identify and prioritize projects as well as develop improvement plans.
WithersRavenel employs several strategies honed through projects across the Piedmont and the Coastal Plain. When evaluating potential retrofits, we look at multiple alternatives with an eye on the incremental value of improvements. We also look for opportunities to complete retrofits as part of, or in conjunction with, larger redevelopment efforts like road or utility reconstruction.
Examples of our service offerings include:
- Watershed Analysis. Our stormwater and GIS professionals can provide in-depth analysis of watersheds, noting its biological and physical characteristics while delineating features. This data provides critical insights into the retrofit process.
- Stormwater Network Design. Sure, a client may be fixing a single stormwater retrofit. But often understanding more of the network is critical to better planning targeted changes. WithersRavenel team members consider the big picture while staying focused on your project.
- Constructability Analysis. A well-designed retrofit is one that can be built and also stay within budget and compliance guidelines. At WithersRavenel, we recognize that affordability and compliance are just as important as project design.
Above all, we adhere to the scope of work to make sure that infrastructure improvements achieve the intended goals within the appropriated budgets.
