Stormwater Master Plan - Upper Turtle Creek Basin A

Huitt-Zollars developed a Stormwater Master Plan for Upper Turtle Creek Basin A within the City of University Park, Texas. The study area includes approximately 510 acres and drains into Turtle Creek. The master plan included analysis and assessment of existing storm drain system performance and provided proposed improvement recommendations. Proposed improvements included storm drain upgrades and incorporation of four detention systems to mitigate impacts to downstream properties.

TxDOT Statewide H&H IDIQ

Huitt-Zollars was selected by TxDOT to address hydrologic and hydraulic (H&H) needs across the state. For the first work authorization, scour analyses were completed for twenty bridges in the Tyler District. The delivered scour reports and documentation are being used to set the standard for analyses across the state. The second work authorization is currently in progress and includes an IH-10 corridor hydraulic study in the Beaumont District.

Brazos River Bank Erosion Study

Due to the accelerated erosion of the banks of the Brazos River throughout Fort Bend County from the significant rain events in May 2015, April 2016, and Hurricane Harvey in 2017, Huitt-Zollars was contracted by the Fort Bend County Drainage District to investigate, analyze, model, and develop probable construction costs to address bank erosion at critical sites along 89 miles of the Brazos River through Fort Bend County, Texas.

Caruth Park Underground Detention

A comprehensive Master Drainage Study prepared for the City of University Park indicated the need for temporary detention to help reducing flooding within certain areas of the city. With the lack of available space for a surface detention facility, Huitt-Zollars designed an underground detention system inside a popular City park. The facility is capable of providing 11.7 acre-feet of storage and is located under the park’s soccer field. 

Cottonwood Creek

Streambank erosion along a section of Cottonwood Creek in Allen was threatening the integrity of a popular city trail, a large wastewater line, and the home of a local resident. Huitt-Zollars developed a solution consisting of a cast-in-place reinforced concrete retaining wall to stop the erosion and provide permanent protection to the city’s infrastructure. Acting fast to prevent a catastrophic bank slope failure from occurring Huitt-Zollars worked closely with City staff to develop final bid documents only 67 days after receiving the Notice to Proceed.

Kinkaid School

The Kinkaid Theatre, a 60,000 square foot performing arts facility carefully marries architectural form with theatrical functionality into an educational center that incorporates robust performance system capabilities greater than most secondary school experiences while creating flexibility of the performing arts department (dance, band, and drama) under a common roof.  The facility is a two-theatre complex which includes a 750-seat theatre with balcony as well as a 200-seat Black Box Theatre with full state-of-the-art sound, lighting, and theatrical rigging capabilities a
