Design/Build, Stormwater Management

The patios installed for a client on behalf of Pitcairn Properties mark a new level for Shearon’s design build capabilities. The Civil Engineering, including the design of a subsurface seepage bed for stormwater management, and the landscape design were both conducted by Shearon Environmental.  This ‘insourcing’ allowed for a seamless transition from the design through to the construction of the patios.

These patios include tensile fabric shade structures to provide an area of shady relief for outdoor meetings or casual relaxation. Shearon Environmental was not only able deliver the project on time and on budget but also was able provide the best quality product to the client in keeping with our ethos of Quality-Consistency-Efficiency.
