About This Project
The ParkVue project is a five-acre site in Bellevue, Tennessee, which consists of four multifamily condo buildings and 24 single-family homes. The scope of Southern Site’s work on this project included erosion control, clearing, mass excavation, grading, sewer, water, storm infrastructure, water treatment, and underground electrical.
Challenges and Unique Features
A complicating factor on this project was the fact that there was essentially zero storm drainage on the site. Instead, the drainage system was all pervious pavers, with a detention system underneath the pavers. We had to do metered sewer and master metered water. ParkVue was one of the first private water and sewer communities in the area, and it was the first development with this style of underground detention in this region as well.
The reason this type of drainage system was used was due to a lack of room to build ponds, so it was necessary to develop a detention facility underneath the road. This caused some interesting issues with the local municipality, simply because their specifications didn’t address this type of system. It was uncharted territory for them, because their specifications were more for public infrastructure, whereas this was entirely private.
By the time we finished the ParkVue project, we had moved 21,000 CY of dirt, with 20,000 tons of shot rock import, along with 15,000 tons of gravel paver subgrade. We also installed 1,105 LF of sewer, 4,705 LF of subsurface drainage for the paver drainage system, 1,501 LF of water line, and 2,178 LF of electric.
Our mass excavation team did a great job on this site. They got the entire site on grade within about three weeks. In addition, our team that handled the underground drainage and stone backfill really knocked it out of the park. Overall, we couldn’t be more proud of the work our Southern Site teams performed on the ParkVue project.
