Timmons Group is serving as the principal design consultant for Gray’s Creek, a 250-home, single-family development in Fuquay-Varina, NC. Located off Wilbon Road, near Lincoln Heights Elementary School, the community features a pool, clubhouse, and tot lot.
New infrastructure was designed to service the community, including 13,344 linear feet of 8” water main and 10,185 linear feet of 8’ gravity sewer main. Coordinating closely with Harnett County Department of Public Utilities staff to determine anticipated pressures at the point of connection, Timmons Group developed a detailed hydraulic model of the proposed water system. Using the model to find a balance between adequate household pressures and excessive system pressures, Timmons Group was able to determine the optimal settings for a necessary pressure reducing valve to serve the subdivision.
Transportation improvements included the design of 11,499 linear feet of new roadways, as well as the design of new turn lanes into the subdivision off Wilbon Road and Coley Farm Road. Close coordination with NCDOT was maintained throughout the design in order to secure approvals.
