Holland State Park – Lake Macatawa Campground Repaving / Sanitary Station Reconstruction

  • Repaving of all internal paved streets and pathways.
  • Reconstruction of the sanitary dump station.
  • An overall evaluation of the condition of the pavement and subgrade material was performed to determine the best method for repaving.
  • A study of the traffic flow was performed, and certain areas were widened and parking areas reconfigured to provide better flow and accessibility for today’s larger recreational vehicles.
  • The sanitary dump station was completely redesigned and reconstructed to accommodate the larger RV units as well.
  • Several water spigots throughout the campground were upgraded.
  • Work had to be constructed during winter and spring months prior to the busy camping season.
  • The existing main service drive had to be relocated further to the south, cutting into a significant slope to make way for future exhibit space.
  • The terrain required the construction of a large retaining wall over 15’ tall in one location.
  • Considering several different retaining wall options, ultimately, choosing a driven sheet pile wall to limit excavation requirements and to streamline the construction schedule.
  • The contractor had to be sensitive to the needs of the nearby animals and zoo patrons.
  • Reconstruction and reconfiguration of storm sewer and sanitary sewer mains.
  • Relocation of electrical equipment, and relocation of a major gas main.
  • We coordinated the work in such a way as to limit the impact on zoo operations.
  • The Oaks of Rockford is a thriving 55 and over high-end mobile home community.
  • Moore+Bruggink prepared the original design for Phase 1 construction in 2002.
  • After the community went defunct and sat vacant for several years, new owners revitalized Phase 1 with new homes and a new operational plan.
  • Moore+Bruggink connected with the new owners, and Phase 2 was completed in 2019 along with a building addition and pool at the community clubhouse.
  • Phase 3 is under construction and planned for completion in Spring 2020.
  • Design and constrution engineering for 0.50 miles of shared-use path construction to connect Delta Mills Park and Hunters Orchard Park with the existing path network.
  • Completed through the MDOT LAP process and included 240 feet of timber boardwalk and a 75’ prefabricated steel pedestrian bridge to cross Carrier Creek and the wetlands adjacent to Carrier Creek.
  • Much of the project was constructed within the 100-year floodplain of the Grand River and included detailed coordination and permitting with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE).
