Trinity Baptist Church
Raleigh, North Carolina
This project is typical of our recent commercial and institutional development projects. The Church needed to expand to provide accommodations for increased neighborhood involvement and family enrichment activities. The expansion involved a large building addition, added parking, modifications to the existing parking, and roadway improvements along the public street frontage.
A part of the project that was most sensitive to the neighborhood involved the addition of significant areas of impervious surface to an already densely developed site. Storm water detention and treatment had to be achieved using structured containment and sand filtration beneath the parking areas. As the region and state continue to grow, similar techniques will become more prevalent to address the necessary rules and regulations for urban storm water control and treatment.
