Ashland High School

Ashland, MA

The project was a new school set on 53 acres of land with frontage on an extensively traveled local roadway.  In addition to the typical site design issues regarding internal circulation this project required extensive parking spaces because the school is used by numerous groups within the Town.  A signalized intersection and sewer extension were also required as off site requirements. Project design elements included site and roadway access design, large parking areas, and, storm water design including new catch basins, manholes, drainage piping and numerous detention/retention basins. 

Due to the Wetlands Protection Act extensive storm water modeling including pre and post development storm water runoff, determination of flood elevations, recharge and percent total suspended solids (TSS) were calculated.  The use of best management practices (BMP’s) were incorporated and.  A NOI was submitted in accordance with MADEP and local Conservation requirements including an extensive Storm Water Management Report.
