Site Solutions

Saving taxpayer dollars and managing runoff.


Survey drilling on the 90-acre site revealed more than 50,000 cubic yards of rock in the construction area. Our team blasted the rock and redistributed it on the site, saving the school district nearly $1 million in haul-off costs. Because of a lack of sewer service for the school, the Carroll Daniel team assisted in the design and construction of three sanitary septic fields with engineered soil and lift stations. We installed eight temporary ponds to manage runoff when underground springs were encountered during excavation for the septic fields.

Attentive Coordination and Planning

Enclosed courtyard takes shape.


The design of the school includes an enclosed courtyard in the center of the building with terraced steps and internal drainage. The project team prioritized finishing the courtyard feature ahead of completing the rear of the facility. The decision mitigated potential drainage issues but created access challenges for completion of the facility’s exterior skin. Careful coordination and planning by our field operations team helped bring the courtyard to reality without impacting construction on the remainder of the facility.

The project schedule duration was only two years, and amid the height of COVID, supply chain issues and 27,000 cubic yards of blue granite, Carroll Daniel never lost sight of quality and finished the project on time and within budget.
