Geosyntec provides owner’s engineering support in erosion and sediment control as well as stormwater management for a 74-MW solar energy facility in Beaufort County, North Carolina, owned and operated by a national leader in renewable energy. Geosyntec was contracted to provide site observations, document review, and a corrective action plan with cost estimates on roughly 500 acres of disturbance spread over four panel regions.
Geosyntec's Scope of Services
Upon Notice to Proceed, Geosyntec conducted field investigations while also reviewing construction documents, narrative, studies, and calculations.
As part of the Scope, Geosyntec developed a set of memoranda that summarized our observations, assumptions and findings, noting any deficiencies or irregularities in the field and the documents provided; assembled a set of recommendations, to include a Corrective Action Plan, to remedy the issues and challenges of the site; and collaborated with a contractor to provide a Probable Opinion of Cost to implement the solutions.
Geosyntec responded to Dominion’s request and immediately conducted a site visit with Dominion Energy’s Renewables Team to assess the issues and needs. Acknowledging that maintenance and service of the active Solar Farm was being hampered by the adverse conditions on site, Geosyntec expeditiously developed site options, conceptual designs, details, and sequences, as well as cost estimates to support Dominion’s claims against the original developer. The information Geosyntec provided assisted in getting to a quick and decisive solution that improved the drainage on site, which in turn allowed for more efficient and comprehensive operations at the facility.
