The City of Sheffield Lake retained Bramhall Engineering in the fall of 2016 to prepare construction documents for a wood observation deck and permeable paver walkway at Shell Cove Park. Pat Hastings, the Sheffield Lake City Superintendent, spearheaded the project. Through his efforts the City secured a $90,000 grant to replace an existing wood structure with one that is handicap accessible. Hastings said he was very fond of that old wood deck. You see, he had worked on the original construction when he was in high school.
Scott Maiden and Keith Rohall completed the field work. Aaron Appell, Steve Miglets and Clarence Watkins prepared the plans.
Bramhall is proud to have worked with Master Site Developer The Richard E. Jacobs Group LLC. to bring Cabela’s to Avon. The 13 acre site includes a 77,000 square-foot building, more than 460 parking spaces and 1.1 acre wetland enhancement area. In conjunction with the Cabela’s Site Development, 1,500 linear feet of Chester Road was widened from 2 lanes to 5 lanes including sanitary and storm sewer extensions, waterline replacement, relocation of overhead power and communications facilities to all underground. Bramhall provided civil engineering and land surveying services including lot split, lot consolidation, site preparation drawings, storm sewer design, on site storm water management facilities, storm water pollution prevention (SWP3) documents, public road widening (Chester Road), sanitary design, waterline design, utility easements, utility coordination and construction staking.
Bramhall provided a host of Low-Impact Development solutions in a compact urban space for the historic St. Casimir Church in Cleveland, as well as grant coordination for the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District’s 2016 Green Infrastructure Grant. The project features permeable pavement and bio-retention to reduce runoff, and will be completely funded by the Sewer District grant.

Bramhall provided limited civil engineering and land surveying services including lot split, lot consolidation, storm sewer design, on site storm water management facilities, storm water pollution prevention (SWP3) documents, public road widening (Long Road), culvert design, waterline design, utility easements and utility coordination.
Bramhall provided design, EPA permit coordination and construction management for a $500,000 expansion and upgrade to the Sheffield-Sheffield Lake Schools waste water treatment plant. Timeline was everything, as the plant had to be back on line for the start of the 2015-2016 school year.
Bramhall provided site engineering and foundation design services for the Northfield Oldcastle Building Expansion 2015. Elements of the project also included building coordination, building foundations and equipment foundations.
Bramhall provided site, foundation, and structural engineering for the Shelly Materials W. 130th St. aggregate yard. The project also involved coordination with railroad, local and state agencies.
The Project Site has a varied and multi-faceted land use history. In the 1930's the site included portions of an inter-urban trolley rail line. The majority of the site was used predominantly as agricultural land up to the 1950's. In the 1960's, portions of the property were used as a borrow site for construction of IR90/SR2. The site was briefly used as a recreation park up until the early 1970's with a 30 acre and 38 acre lake that were both approximately 25 feet deep. In the 1970's the site began to be used as a storage facility for fly ash, which is a residual waste material produced in the combustion of coal. The property was purchased from a local utility company by the City of Avon and in 2004 began a creative site redevelopment planning process. The Design Phase for the French Creek recreation Complex began in 2008. The baseball stadium opening for play 12 months later on June 2, 2009 on schedule and under budget, with a sold-out capacity crowd of over 5,000.
