AFTER MANY YEARS OF ANTICIPATION, INDIVIDUAL STORMWATER MANAGEMENT IS REQUIRED ON ALMOST ALL PROJECTS
CALL US: (610) 280-9541
We provide completeTURNKEY design and construction services. We are experts in the individual Stormwater Management Systems, Residential Designs, and Building Permits. From deep hole testing and infiltration, on-lot septic systems, stormwater management, and erosion control, to architecture and hardscaping designs, retaining systems, structural assessments and inspection, we do it all.
In addition, we also install what we design. Our services are complete. Projects are controlled from start to finish. No additional consultants are required.
Complete Design Services
Since our inception in 1993, we have been specializing in the individual construction permit process. We have successfully prepared thousands of permits over forty townships in three states. Under the new regulations, we have prepared 50 plans already in this year alone.
Twenty years ago, the permit process was little more than an erosion control plan. Things have changed with the aggressive implementation of the ACT 167, MS4 as it relates to stormwater management. After years of neglect, it was time to gain control over the persistent flooding created by the lack of attention to construction. You will hear those two acronyms often. ACT 167 was implemented by the Department of Environmental Protection (EPA) and FEMA. MS4 permits were developed around a general PADEP boiler plate specification. The MS4 varies greatly across Townships and Counties.
To all of us in the industry, this means that we must make efforts to reduce stormwater runoff from past and future developments.
These regulations can be difficult to understand. Many townships have created their own methods in the stormwater permit (MS4). Being in this aggressive economic environment, time and cost is our edge! We not only must become educated ourselves, but we must educate the consumer!
Clients are at a disadvantage if they negotiate a contract without addressing the new stormwater management procedures. Furthermore, a consumer who is not familiar with the regulations can be easily misled by a contractor who is not following the code. Either unintentionally or intentionally, the contractor prepares a proposal without consideration for stormwater management. Then they come in with a much lower bid and is awarded the contract, only to impose extras onto the homeowner. We hear this all the time when a homeowner asks us, if the stormwater management is necessary.
We prepare over 250 permits per year! Erosion and Sedimentation plans, Lines and Grades Plans, Infiltration Studies and Stormwater Management Systems.
