Security Fencing, Campus Entrance Roundabout and Master Utility Drawings Projects
DGL provided the design for the mini roundabout and connector drive at the main entrance of the Penta Career Center campus. The purpose of the project was to enhance traffic circulation and efficiency during peak hours of the school day. This project will be constructed to align with the planned Buck and Lime City Road improvements adjacent to campus, to be constructed in 2019. Demolition of the existing intersection, minor drainage improvements, pavement markings and signage are also included with the project. DGL also provided assistance through the advertising and bidding phase.
In separate contracts from the roundabout with Penta Career Center, DGL developed the construction documents for the perimeter security improvements, as well as providing the school with a campus master utility drawing. The perimeter security improvement plans included the layout and details for 1,900 feet of security fencing, 270 feet of galvanized chain-link fencing, vehicular sliding gates, swing gates, pedestrian gates and several decorative brick piers. DGL also worked very closely with Penta’s security contractor during design to ensure the school’s security needs were met when incorporating the new fencing, gates and access points. We also created a master utility drawing for the Penta campus. The school was in need of a drawing containing all underground site utilities that currently existed on their campus. DGL performed the necessary field work and record drawing research to create the drawing, which included each utility color coded and depicted for quick reference purposes.
