Civil Design Inc was retained to produce the site design required for the Comfort Suites hotel, convention center, and restaurant located in Brookings, SD. The design and plan production included grading, drainage, water & sewer services, surfacing, and sidewalks.
The Comfort Suites project will include expansion of an existing regional detention pond to control storm water discharge to pre-developed conditions. A drainage analysis, report and pond expansion design was completed by CDI in conjunction with the Comfort Suites project.
During a city street project completed in 2012 and designed by CDI, our engineers were insightful in teaming with the City of Brookings to size the storm sewer system for the development of the future hotel property. The developer compensated the city for the oversized storm sewer pipe included in the city project. This proved to be a win-win between all parties, decreasing overall costs, eliminating redesign & reconstruction, and reducing infrastructure.
For the design of the Comfort Suites, CDI worked under the lead of a local architect, which included collaboration with the mechanical sub-consultant to determine service sizes and locations. The overall project costs for this hotel, convention center, and restaurant is estimated at $12.5 million.
