Hood Avenue Improvements
Forest Park, GA
This project includes widening and realignment of a roadway corridor along existing Hood Avenue within the Fort Gillem Redevelopment area in Forest Park, Georgia. The design included Hood Avenue and a section of Flankers Road broken up into a 2- or 3-phase construction project. Aulick Engineering addressed the need to implement stormwater measures to minimize the water quantity and quality impacts from the proposed development downstream of the project.
Aulick designed nine (9) wet stormwater detention ponds and six (6) enhanced swales to reduce post-construction runoff to meet pre-construction flows to the extent practical while also providing required water quality and channel protection. The stormwater team prepared the necessary hydraulic and hydrologic reports, checklists, and cost estimates for the project. In addition, Aulick was involved in permitting with the City and received few review comments. Upon completion of each phase, an as-built analysis was performed to ensure the improvements met the design criteria concerning water quality, channel protection, post-developed peak flow rates, and other non-quantitative matters.
One of our more recent projects was the Atlantic Aviation FBO Terminal Complex at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport. We hired Aulick Engineering to provide airport and civil site design services for the 25-acre development; their scope encompassed nearly 15 acres of new pavement for taxilanes, aprons, and parking lots on the 25-acre site. Aulick was responsible for airport design, civil site design, stormwater management design, erosion control design, and city and county permitting coordination. Additionally, Aulick was retained to provide construction administration and limited construction inspection services.Aulick Engineering impressed me through all phases of the project. As can be expected at a World War II-era site, several field issues were encountered during the construction phase of the project. Aulick staff members were extremely responsive when these issues arose and were able to be at the job site within minutes; their engineers were resourceful and quickly came up with innovative solutions to ensure that the construction schedule was not adversely impacted. I have witnessed the same behavior while working with Aulick on other projects and appreciate the professionalism and enthusiasm that they bring to our project teams.”
