Since 2007, the CAA team has helped the Town of Poolesville, Maryland with general engineering services including daily inspections of Town infrastructure. We've been an integral part of the growth of the town, seeing dozens of new homes built, taking part in the grand opening of a new skate park, helping install the state of Maryland's first radon and uranium removal system from the Town's drinking water supply, and overseeing the installation of solar panels that provide power to the Town's wastewater treatment plant.
CAA is also working as Town Engineer in Garrett Park where we are implementing a new Safe Routes to School Program and developing a new Capital Improvement Program. For the Town of Barnesville, we are designing upgrades to transportation systems.
In 2008, the Town of Poolesville relocated its government offices from an historic bank building to a new 5,000-square-foot office building. CAA staff were responsible for managing the construction of the new office building which included a new pervious pavement parking lot. Four years after the grand opening, we tested the lot to ensure the pavement was holding up by releasing a fire hydrant adjacent to the parking lot. This video shows that, after four years of daily use, the parking lot continues to soak up the water, preventing black ice and erosion build-up.
For 5 years, staff at CAA helped manage a subcontract with a CM team for the construction of a new 5.3-mile, 84-inch diameter water main in a 10-foot diameter tunnel and also provided administrative support on-site for one year. As a small business, CAA can help large teams meet small business goals.
