Project Description

The development of a 40-lot subdivision in Gig Harbor, Washington, needed a cost-effective and practical wastewater system to support the project. The parcel also contained several hundred large conifer trees. We presented a cluster of subdivision concept combined with subsurface dripfields in the forested areas. This strategy dramatically reduced lot sizes and the footprints of the developed area, saving the developer significant infrastructure costs. And teh placement of dripfields allowed for minimal vegetative disturbance, preserving nearly half of the land as green areas.

ADC showed us a cluster plan that saved almost 40% in construction costs while still meeting all the project’s infrastructure requirements. It’s great to have an engineering partner watch out for your bottom line like that. – Don Huber, President & CEO, United Western Development
