The Newest Obstacle for Coffey Park
What if your neighbor to the right chose to raise their foundation two feet higher than yours, while the neighbor to the left decided a three-foot increase was what they wanted to do. That creates a grading problem. Many new subdivisions have one civil engineer designing all the grading, drainage, and pad heights, however, Coffey Park has many civil engineers performing design on individual lots, as well as many different builders and their finished design.
Driving through the affected areas of Coffey Park that have started foundations, and even some homes that are already up, have a repeating issue – the FFE (Finished Floor Elevation) is off, in some cases significantly more than their neighbors FFE.
How can this be avoided moving forward? The answer is project engineers, contractors, and builders performing assessments of the surrounding parcels in the field and with the City’s permit records before completing design and moving to construction. BC Engineering Group performs these assessments to ensure their clients receive a design product that can be practically built with the surrounding conditions and with efficient value.
