LAND DEVELOPMENT - Waste Water Treatment Plant 1

Parra & Co was engaged by HEB to perform the Engineering Design of their Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) for the upcoming Austin 33 store. This includes providing a Preliminary Engineering Report and Irrigation Field Design related services.

During Phase I of this project, the Parra & Co team researched the site with the intent of providing a conceptual sizing of the drip field for a 14,000 gpd
on site WWTP that will serve the new HEB store and produce our Preliminary Engineering Report (PER). This PER included a comparison between a conventional activated sludge system and a secuence match reactor that complies with the existing Texas Land Application Permit. (TLAP)

During phase II, Parra & Co is providing the performance specifications and Construction Documents for the WWTP system and irrigation field. Moreover, our team will provide assistance with permitting, construction inspection, startup, and post-construction/warranty.

Parra & Co received approval of the system from TCEQ in October 2021.

Aster Development created their first project in San Antonio as four town homes in the historic Tobin Hills neighborhood. The Architect was Architectura SA. Our Parra & Co team from brief research noticed that the property had a very old plat that needed to be checked with the City, since it might be deemed antiquated.

The project consisted of developing four townhomes in the Tobin Hill Historic Neighborhood and was approved as a 3-story multifamily structure. Our team received survey, site plan and Geotech report from the architects.

Parra & Co provided Site Civil Construction Documents (SWMP, Traffic Impact Analysis [TIA] worksheet, Site Utility Plan, Site Plan, Grading Plan, Drainage Plan, Fire Protection Plan, Pavement Plan and SWPPP), CPS Coordination, Stormwater Management Plan/Drainage Report and Construction Phase services.

Per request of the historical commission, this project featured a pervious pavement driveway.

Parra & Co in collaboration with Able City and the Diocese of Laredo assisted on the rehabilitation and plaza improvements as part of the San Agustin Plaza Masterplan.

In 2014, the team began to assess, restore, rehabilitate, and improve Laredo’s most recognizable historic structure, which was built in 1872. The focus on the building itself was broadened to include the transitional spaces or plazas to the west and south of the tower. These plazas play a critical role in the experience of the Cathedral’s visitors, and to the urban life playing out in the city around it.

Our design balances the public nature of the plaza and gardens with the need to provide contemplative spaces for religions functions. Civil Engineering was completed in 2020 and the construction was finalized in 2021.
