Austin Bergstrom International Airport ConRAC Facility
Baer Engineering managed the storm water compliance of the construction activities with state and city requirements on behalf of the ABIA Environmental Section. Baer performed the required weekly inspections from April 2013 until September 2015. Baer inspectors worked cooperatively with the contractor and offered constructive recommendations to promote Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) compliance. As a result of the teamwork, the site remained in substantial SWPPP compliance despite the challenge of the accelerated rate of heavy construction. Baer provided a comprehensive inspection report within a 24 hour turnaround time to expedite the as-needed corrections and improvements. Baer was responsible for supervising the recordkeeping, supervising revisions to the erosion and sedimentation plans due to alterations in construction, and coordinating COA approval to remove controls when portions of the project were completed.
Baer Engineering also assisted the contractor with as-needed environmental services, including the soil sampling, disposal, and clean-up documentation for a diesel spill from a crane, and the proper disposal of 10,000 gallons of potentially contaminated fluid from an oil-water separation tank and also from an underground storage tank.
John Davis Building
Baer Engineering was the prime firm for design and development of a four-acre commercial office building and pad sites for mixed-use development in east Austin. Baer led a team composed of an architecture firm, a civil firm, an MEP firm, and a surveyor.
Baer Engineering’s hydrology and hydraulics professional sized two detention ponds and two water quality ponds, and designed the grading and drainage plans for the office building and future pad sites.
The original two drainage easements were constructed to convey stormwater run-on from adjacent property. The easements were replaced by new storm water management facilities, so there would be no adverse impacts to the surrounding properties. Baer applied for vacation of the existing drainage easement as well as an abandoned roadway on the eastern boundary of the property.
