Master Panning and Site Development

The 96-acre Wellbridge campus is a research and addiction treatment center established on the principle that the treatment of addiction must be delivered in an environment that fosters well-being and compassionate care.

IMEG provided civil engineering design service for the new treatment center, including master planning, traffic engineering, site plans and grading, pump station, drainage, utility infrastructure design, and force main analysis.

IMEG’s scope of work initiated with the master planning of the entire Wellbridge campus. With a development program defined and conceptual architectural building footprints provided, a site master plan was formulated with critical engineering tasks focused on the overall development footprint, siting of the campus buildings, vehicular access, circulation and parking management, utility infrastructure demands, stormwater management approach, and open space amenity layout.

IMEG optimized low impact development (LID) strategies including compact development footprint, development within previously disturbed areas of the property, and use of natural topography and green infrastructure techniques to manage stormwater runoff. Irrigation water usage was reduced by over 80% with use of native grasses that didn’t require irrigation, and limited managed landscape areas.

The compact campus layout maximizes the preservation of native woodlands and grasslands. Approximately 72 acres of the property will remain undisturbed and approximately 51 acres will remain natural woodlands, grasslands, and wetlands.

IMEG’s services were within the requirements of the State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) Act.
