The Villages at Carver-Public Improvements

Atlanta, GA

Type: Public Infrastructure

Contract Amount: $9,283,500

Project Description:

  IBG Construction Services was selected by Carver Development to manage the redevelop of the public improvements at the site of Carver Homes – a 100 acre public housing project owned by the Atlanta Housing Authority. The project goal was to redevelop the existing City of Atlanta right of way. This work consisted of demolishing the existing roadways and replacing them with a new network of streets meeting the master plan for the proposed mixed income community. The projects focus was two fold first the beautification of the blighted urban environment  and second the upgrading of existing infrastructure.  Beautification measures included development of a linear community park, new streets, sidewalks, hardscapes, landscaping, traffic signage and relocation of overhead utilities underground. Infrastructure improvements included increasing of existing utility capacity and the separation of storm and sanitary sewer systems. Due to the timing of City of Atlanta and State of Georgia funds the project was performed in five separate phases. The project encountered multiple challenges common to urban sites including discovery of structurally unsuitable soils, coordination of new utilities with undocumented existing utilities and radical variations in site terrain.  IBG successfully completed all phases of  this work by managing a construction team consisting of contractors, civil engineer, soils engineer and municipal officials.
