LAND DEVELOPMENT SAMPLE PROJECTS

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.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT - Greenline 3

A sustainable project that consisted of transforming the old 19th hole officers’ air force base lounge into a 4,000+ sq ft restaurant and bar at the Greenlinepark of Brooks.

Parra & Co provided Project Management services, along with Civil Engineering, Permitting, and Construction Administration for the Urbanika Group. The Architect was Gomez Vazquez International (GVI) Within Civil Engineering we provided: Tree & Topographic survey, utility plan, fire protection site plan, grading & drainage plan, rezoning process, as well as mechanical, electric, and plumbing services.

The team focused on providing sustainable solutions within the project’s budget, incorporating a low impact development throughout the design, including bioswales and rainwater harvesting tanks. The project is also connected to the recycled water network of the San Antonio Water System for Sustainable irrigation. Parra & Co continues to provide construction observation as the project further develops.

LAND DEVELOPMENT - Civil Engineering Services 1
Locust Townhomes Rendering

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.

Ongoing | Cyber Fortress Headquarters - PM & Civil Engineering

CyberFortress, a San Antonio-based cyber security firm (previously known as Jungle Disk) is completely renovating an existing commercial building at 2102 S Presa St. to become their new headquarters. The 4,000 sq ft space has been planned to be pandemic-conscious with a sustainable design, including a large outdoor area with solar panels on the patio covers.

Parra & Co was engaged by CyberFortress to provide Project Management and Civil Engineering services for their office building development. Our team is providing Site Civil Plans, such as: Existing Conditions / Demolition plan, Site Dimensional Control plan, Grading plan, Utility plan, and Traffic Impact Analysis [TIA] worksheet for permitting assistance.

2021 | Cibolo Miracle League Ballfield - Utilities & Site Civil

Parra & Co was engaged by IM Studios to provide Civil Engineering Services for the new Ballfield land, described as approx. 1.38 acres at 338 S Main Street in Cibolo, TX. Parra & Co was contracted to complete the Civil Engineering Design, Surveying and Storm Water Management Plan for the parcel. The new ballfield was built next to two existing baseball fields in the YMCA Cibolo Sport Complex. 

Based on information gathered from the FEMA floodplain Zone AE at the start of the project, an existing creek goes through the parcel from south-east through north-west. The previously existing baseball fields, as well as the new one, fall in the area of minimal flood hazard. Parra & Co collected background information needed (Arc GIS data; City of Cibolo, TX; and Guadalupe County) and visited with the City of Cibolo regarding the proposed development at the parcel. Our team prepared Site Civil Construction Documents, Storm Water Management Plan with Drainage Calculations, and Boundary & Topographic Survey. The project was completed in 2021.

2022 | Alana Lane Town Homes - Construction Documents

The Alana Lane townhomes are a development planned by a private developer in a 1.8 acres site in Oak Ridge North, TX.

This project also included Stormwater Management Plan, Detention Pond, Drainage System design and Grading design.

2022 | Locust Townhomes - Civil Engineering

Aster Developments created their first project in San Antonio in the historic Tobin Hills neighborhood. The design concept is based on enjoying the experience of living in Tobin Hill, “an eclectic place where history and modernity intertwine, creating a unique atmosphere.” 

The 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 consisting of developing four townhomes in the Tobin Hill Historic neighborhood was approved as a 3-story multi family structure.

2020 | Southerleigh Micro Brewery - Civil Engineering

Parra & Co was engaged by Urbanika Group to provide consulting services for Zoning Change and Project Management for the Southerleigh Brewery development (Brooks City Base Project).

Due to the nature of the development in the selected location a zoning change was necessary for the 2.92 acres site of the Community Bible Church. After researching the most appropriate/flexible land use and zoning categories, our team developed a Zoning Plan for a Zoning Change Application to be submitted to the City of San Antonio. 

Our team reviewed the existing land use/zoning; and researched planning and zoning issues pertaining to an update to the existing land use/zoning, as well as researched, evaluated and determined zoning category requirements. Based on our research we provided recommendations on the most appropriate land use/zoning category and met with the appropriate agencies, zoning commissioners and council members, we applied for the rezoning approval process and presented the project to the Required Commission and City Council. In regard to Project Management, our team provided hourly project management services for project initiation and zoning change, as well as any other consulting tasks, as necessary.
