McKim & Creed provided engineering design services for campus student housing on North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus. Wolf Ridge is a 347,000-SF campus student housing complex. McKim & Creed performed the advanced site planning and civil engineering services required to expand the utilities and infrastructure that serve the complex (including an extension of Main Campus Drive), as well as the east portion of the Oval.
McKim & Creed identified feasible utility corridor routes around the project site, which included extending the existing utilities within Main Campus Drive to accommodate the road expansion. Engineers evaluated an existing sewer main for capacity limitations and recommended replacement/rehabilitation options in keeping with proposed capacity needs once all development is complete. Plans for extending water service to proposed buildings were also developed. A conceptual corridor route for the extension of Main Campus Drive was furnished, which incorporated service and parking deck access, as well as a connection to Blair Drive.
