Civil Engineering


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.

The Spring 2017 project and teams were:


Haslett Village Square, Meridian Township, MI Mixed-use Development

Screen Shot 2017-04-07 at 3.03.53 PMStudent 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. Additionally, the site incorporated installation of a new craft brewery with production and distribution facilities. 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 mature trees on-site as possible; and to identify and protect any federally classified wetlands on-site.
