Check out one of Redniss & Mead’s residential projects featured on Houzz:
Our part of the work we do together with an Architect’s team may not always be visible, but it is essential to the success of the project. Here is what we contributed to this impressive farmhouse:
We prepared a Property & Topographic survey for the 9.5 acre parcel used as the basis of the design. Surveying services also included staking out the improvements for construction and preparing an Improvement Location Survey depicting the constructed improvements. Engineering services included preparing engineered plans for approval purposes, attending Planning & Zoning and Inland Wetlands Commission meetings with the design team to pursue approval. Then we obtained approval from the Health Department for a 6 bedroom septic system for the main house and a 3 bedroom system for the cottage, designing a drainage system, site grading, utilities and sediment and erosion controls. It was important to work with the design team the site design work around and maintain significant site trees on the property, provide appropriate buffer areas to the wetlands while selecting locations and meeting all the required setbacks for the septic system, drainage system, retaining walls and wells including geothermal wells. During construction we were actively involved with overseeing construction activities, responding to site changes, responding to RFI’s, providing appropriate certifications in conjunction with a request for a certificate of occupancy.
