Pulte Homes is a residential home construction company with homes located across the country. It’s one of the various brands of PulteGroup, one of the largest home construction companies in the United States.
As housing needs continue to increase in the growing central Ohio region, Pulte Homes partnered with ms consultants to meet the continued demands for multiple residential developments.
Pulte Homes enlisted ms consultants to assist with the development of its 100-acre site along Home Road in Orange Township, Ohio. The site, located just north of Columbus, is split into two sections including single-family residential and senior-living condominiums.
To begin the project, ms consultants conducted a detailed onsite wetland and stream delineation investigation. Following the investigation, ms worked with the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (ACOE) and the Ohio EPA (OEPA) to address the site impacts and mitigation efforts required. These efforts include a detailed endangered species study to address tree clearing in compliance with U.S. Fish and Wildlife regulations.
Additionally, the ms team is providing full site civil construction documents for the single and multi-family residential development. These documents include, stormwater detention systems, private roadways, public water distribution, and sanitary sewer collection systems. ms consultants is also handling the site grading efforts and developing a cut/fill balance prior to construction.
Coordination between Delaware County Engineer, Delaware County Regional Sewer District, DLZ, HDR, and the adjacent property owners for easement access has been key for project development to provide site access and address current expansion of I-71. Site access to the condominium section of this residential development is via a public road extension. This road extension is currently being designed and installed and will be critical for construction.
The ms team has worked closely with Delaware County to coordinate the drive connection, stormwater detention, and landscape screening along the shared property lines.
