Each Civil and Environmental Engineering team is responsible for developing a design that addresses environmental, geotechnical, hydrological, pavement, transportation, and structural issues for the project. A student project manager coordinates each team. Design reports are judged by the faculty; progress reports and the oral presentations are judged by a board of practicing professionals.
Project presentations will be held in Rooms 1538 and 3540 Engineering Building. Admission is free and open to the public.
CE 495 SENIOR DESIGN IN CIVIL & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING
Michigan State University, Mixed-use Development
Student-teams developed preliminary designs for elements of a 29-acre site located west of Marsh Rd. and south of Haslett Road. The site was to be designed as a mixed-use development following the Meridian Township Planned Unit Development (PUD) requirements.
The project development must include both residential and commercial land uses. The objective of this project was to provide Meridian Township Planning Commission with a Preliminary Engineering Design. Major goals were to maximize green space; create a walkable community and ensure pedestrian and bicycle access to the Inter-Urban pathway, local schools, and Meridian Township; to protect as many of the mature trees on-site as possible; and to identify and protect any federally classified wetlands on-site.
