West Gum Bayou Drainage Improvements

West Gum Bayou Drainage Improvements project was funded through a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from the Texas General Land Office awarded to the City of Dickinson for infrastructure improvements due to damage from Hurricane Harvey. The area had a history of repetitive loss which means structural flooding more than once in the same location. More specifically, the roadways leading to the high school experienced frequent flooding that prevented access to and from the school.

Grundfos North Americas HQ Office Building

Ramboll A/S in Denmark was selected by Grundfos, a Denmark-based global water technology manufacturer, as Program Manager for a new 45,000-square-foot Americas Regional Center in Brookshire, Texas.

Grundfos’ in-house architect in Denmark designed the new building; therefore, Ramboll needed to find a firm capable of interpreting and redrawing the plans, originally done to European standards, to US standards for procurement by a separate Design/Build team.

The intersection was identified as a local priority by Allen City Council in 2018 due to growing traffic volumes, increased pedestrian use, and expectations for future development in downtown Allen. After a lengthy review process, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) approved the proposed design in 2021.
