Highmark Medical Center Extensive Use of LID Design Techniques
Client: Highmark Investments
Working closely with the developer and the government agencies, PACLAND developed a site plan and an innovative stormwater management strategy that allowed for expedited permitting on the 40,000 SF LEED Gold certified medical office building. The stormwater management system included extensive use of Low Impact Development (LID) design techniques, including rain gardens, media filter slopes and custom design for a high water table. The innovative design simplified permitting by eliminating the need to connect to municipal systems below State Route 900.
