A bio-retention pond was designed and constructed to reduce run-off and improve water quality. The pond is 120,000 square feet in size and 8 feet deep. Run-off from this area and four (4) additional buildings was redirected to the pond. The pond was then filled with 12,000 cubic yards of bio media (dirt/mulch) which act as a natural filtration to an underground storm water piping system.
Over 250 trees and shrubs were planted for filtration and beautification. All vegetation was native to Pennsylvania. Landscape, seed, mulch, sidewalks, and curbs were installed, and the area was restored to a natural park-like setting.
Additionally, this project included a full lighting replacement in Building 112 and a complete interior renovation and office upgrades in Building 113. Building 113 was originally an empty 120,000 square foot warehouse.
