Wiles Mensch Corporation – DC (WM) provided survey and civil engineering services for the development of a new soccer stadium on an 8.5 acre site within the Buzzard Point neighborhood of the Capitol Waterfront. The state-of-the-art facility was designed to host 20,000 fans and features 31 luxury suites, a 200-capacity bike valet lot, and nearly 500,000 SF of space for offices, retail, and other amenities.

The WM Survey team completed a boundary, topographic, and utility survey of the site, as well as a survey to mark (STM). The team also provided underground utility information related to test pits and utility designation for Pepco lines. Further surveys were contracted throughout the remainder of the project, including an additional boundary, topographic, and utility survey, and a property line survey.

WM provided comprehensive civil engineering and landscape architecture services for the stadium, including schematic design, design development, and construction documents. WM completed stormwater management concept plans and stormwater management design for the project, including theoretical analysis and computations for a fully developed watershed area draining to the facility.

Civil engineering design services were provided for a pocket park on the site, including site plans, demolition plans, and sediment and erosion control plans. WM provided specialized building permit services to submit the Civil (BCIV) Permit Application to facilitate site specific technical reviews with DCRA sister agencies. The BCIV permit allowed WM to submit civil drawings and obtain DOEE Sediment and Erosion Control approval for the pocket park construction at 2nd and T Street, SW.
