Case Study

Hopkinton Senior Center

Client:

The Town of Hopkinton

Description:

Meridian Associates provided the town of Hopkinton, MA with complete design development services for their new senior center constructed to replace the existing facility which had been housed in the basement of the town hall. Meridian provided site design services, applied for all local permits, prepared construction documents, and supported construction of site improvements associated with the new 13,100 gsf facility. The engineering challenges included managing the finish grades with the surrounding topography, integrating the stormwater management system into the constrained site, and assisting with cost effective utility support. The primary challenge involved developing a site design that responded to and respected the abutting land-use activities while allowing efficient and functional access by visitors to the facility.
