Kier + Wright understands that construction and development have an impact on the regional water systems surrounding our projects. We appreciate the need to keep the growth of our communities moving forward sustainably, with the preservation of the region’s wetlands and streams in mind.

We’re proud of the role that we play in limiting the environmental impact of local construction projects. Through our sustainable design contributions, we’ve helped many projects accomplish their LEED certification goals, including projects that have successfully achieved LEED Platinum designation.

Recent sustainable design solutions that Kier + Wright has contributed to “green” projects include civil design for green roofs, rainwater harvesting systems, and recycled water systems that implement the latest technological advances in blackwater and greywater treatment.

When presenting our clients with stormwater treatment solutions, we take a bigger-picture design approach, weighing each treatment option against the client’s aesthetic preferences, the goals of the other design consultants, project budgetary constraints, long-term maintenance demands, and the specific preferences of the regulatory agencies reviewing the stormwater treatment plans. By understanding the intricacies of the site and the greater project goals, we incorporate the right treatment options for each project into our designs.

Kier + Wright’s experience includes stormwater treatment design for the development and redevelopment of land affected by some of the most challenging environmental constraints. We have provided sustainable water treatment design for brownfield redevelopment projects, projects constructed on former landfill, and projects constructed on sites with contaminated soils. In doing so, we have helped our clients improve the water quality of the communities surrounding these projects.

Our renewable energies department has specialized solar power plant design and project management experience. Our team is available to provide engineering, surveying and consulting services that support the full lifespan of solar power developments from feasibility through construction.
