ATCS assisted the Town of Leesburg, Virginia by providing site/civil engineering services for the development of the Town’s new 12,000 square foot lighted skate park, in collaboration with Spohn Ranch, the project designer and builder. ATCS’ engineering team provided a variety of consulting services including site layout, grading, zoning compliance, parking, storm drainage, storm water management design, water quality calculations, and design for sediment & erosion control measures to be installed during construction activities.
The subgrade and foundation design incorporated findings made by subsurface reconnaissance, which included conventional soil borings (standard penetration tests), air-track drilling, and electrical resistivity imaging. Major design challenges were encountered with the site civil constraints (topography, storm drainage, and subsurface conditions), which were a significant factor to the final skate park orientation and feature layout, as well as a demolished waste water treatment plant that was decommissioned decades earlier.
The skate park structure layout, ancillary site features, grading, and landscaping were carefully designed to work in harmony with the adjacent properties, including future expansion of an adjacent county fire and rescue squad facility, and regulated major floodplain on the property. This project successfully met the public needs through design development that involved coordination with various Town/County agencies. This collaboration presented a unique opportunity for creativity in helping the community and advancing the revitalization of the Catoctin Skate Park for the Town of Leesburg.
