DAAR provided structure design services on three bridge overlays on I-90, one bridge overlay on an I-90 overpass, and one deck replacement on an I-90 overpass in La Crosse County, WI. The roadway design was performed by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southwest Region. Close coordination with the region was required to ensure consistency in the project plans and construction documents.
Design services are being provided for the 10.5-mile rehabilitation of US 12 between Lake Geneva (WIS 50) and Elkhorn (WIS 67) in Walworth County, WI. In addition to the mainline resurfacing on US 12, the project will include work on numerous structures ranging from complete replacements to painting.
As part of a joint venture (SE Design Works), DAAR prepared final structure plans for eight, single-span prestressed girder structures along I-94 and three, three-span prestressed girder structures at the WIS 11 Interchange in Racine County, WI. Also included was the design of two cantilever sign structures.
This project involved the construction of a low-pressure pipeline in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties, WI that will help customers of the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) save tens of millions of dollars, over 20 years, with the local source of renewable energy.
The photo studio is a 107,000sf office/special use building located on a 7.1-acre property in a business park. The site included significant topography which made the earthwork and grading a challenge. An older regional stormwater pond did not provide enough management to account for the facility, thus supplemental stormwater was needed to compensate for the shortfall of the regional pond.
The Arizona Federal Credit Union is a 5,200 sq ft. branch office located in a larger re-development known as Washington Park. The site was constrained by existing or proposed development very tightly on all sides which made many aspects of the site engineering a challenge. The City requirements for approvals for stormwater were unique in that 100% off the runoff generated was to be infiltrated through a series of retention ponds and injections wells.
Cambridge Commons is a 700+ bed residence hall located on a 3.2-acre parcel of land in a tight urban setting. The site was originally a service station and truck terminal and thus a brownfield. Impacted soils needed to be managed on site, and DAAR completed a plan and earthwork calculations to properly place these soils. The site is also bounded by the Milwaukee River to the west.
Mount Tosa is a 430-unit multi-family development located at the extension of Walnut and 113th Streets. Multiple buildings with both public and private roadways and utility extensions were needed to develop the site. Both surface and underground parking were required to provide enough stalls for the density of the campus. The 19-acre site was formerly a quarry that was converted to a landfill and then reclaimed and converted to a clean earth landfill but was still considered a brownfield.
RexCon is a 110,00 square foot office and industrial facility which fabricates large scale concrete equipment. Significant outdoor staging areas for extra heavy equipment were included in the pavement design which included recycled asphalt. The 26-acre site possessed significant topography, which is not typical of large flat industrial sites, thus earthwork and final slopes were of high importance in the design.
Under this contract, DAAR provided a Communications Specialist to serve as the interim Regional Communications Manager during a 1-year vacancy at the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Southeast Region office.
DAAR’s Communications Specialists work directly with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southeast Region’s Communications Manager to provide support for all public outreach activities. This includes the development of press releases; providing responses to media and legislative inquiries; writing, editing and developing graphics for internal and external publications; and regularly attending project meetings to help prepare and implement public involvement plans.
Asset Management - United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)
DAAR provided Program and Construction Management support to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Gulf Region Division for the reconstruction of Iraq. The reconstruction effort involved 17 programs that accounted for over $14 billion in US funding of over 5,700 construction projects, along with non-construction services and equipment which spanned over 13 Ministries and other Iraqi government organizations
