Charleston Material Recovery Facility Complex
This new environmental management services development is designed to accommodate county EMD administrative offices, public education center, truck scales, and facilities for a 57-vehicle collection fleet including employee facilities, vehicle maintenance building, fuel island and fleet parking.
The 65,000 sf complex will be constructed on a 22-acre site located on Palmetto Commerce Parkway, North Charleston, South Carolina.
The driveway design separates bus/pedestrian from truck access to create safe entry points to the education center. In addition to grading, erosion control and a storm water drainage system designed in accordance with SCDHEC and the City of North Charleston Department of Public Works regulations and standards, the site design includes a building service line tied into a gravity sanitary sewer collection system. The landscaping plan accommodates easement constraints from three major utility transmission lines on the property and includes native pollinator species for trees, shrubs, and grasses.
We are excited to be working with City of North Charleston, Charleston County, SCDHEC – OCRM, FreeseJohnson, and Pieper O’Brien Herr Architects.
