Overton Square Detention & Garage Site Design (Memphis, TN)
As part of the overall redevelopment of Overton Square, a new three-level garage will sit atop an underground floodwater-detention structure designed to alleviate rain flooding throughout the Lick Creek basin.
As a subconsultant to LRK, PHD provided civil engineering services for an INNOVATIVE design of the detention basin, intended to alleviate flooding by detaining 1 million cubic feet of water during storm events. A pump station and drainage infrastructure were included to accommodate the detention design. PHD also provided civil engineering services for site improvements related to the Overton Square Garage, including grading & drainage, sewer, erosion control and traffic control.
