An energy company hired McAdams to conduct entitlement phase support to obtain a Special Use Permit for a substation addition in the Triangle. Upon completion of the SUP, McAdams was brought on to finish the design and permitting process through the regulatory agencies’ Zoning Compliance Permit Process and erosion control program. McAdams is currently providing construction period services, including inspections and oversight, construction staking and as-built certifications. The site was very condensed and required a non-standard substation design from the energy company. A permanent bio-retention area was designed and built to meet detention and nutrient loads.
