Featured Projects

Severn School
Severna Park, Maryland 

DFI provided professional engineering services for the Severn School located in Severna Park, Maryland for several ongoing projects related to the schools expansion and overall improvements.  DFI provided the necessary services for the school to construct bleacher seating and parking improvements adjacent to the turf athletic fields along Maple Avenue.  The scope of work included the preparation of an Administrative Site Plan in accordance with the provisions of the Anne Arundel County Code for the Client to use with their Variance application and providing testimony during the associated hearing to permit placement of the bleachers with less setbacks than required by the County Zoning Code.

DFI further assisted Severn School with its ongoing asset management plan to assign a useful life to its physical plant. In conjunction with the replacement of the school’s main academic building DFI provided Site Development Plans and Erosion and Sediment Control Plans to allow the school to demolish existing residential dwellings associated with campus that would allow for the temporary relocation of students in relocatable learning centers during the construction of the new center for learning.  In addition DFI provided the design of reinforced turf areas to allow for “green” parking areas as well as to memorialize existing impervious surfaces for future development of the subject areas.
