The FedEx Sanford, Florida civil site engineering was designed and permitted by H & H Engineering. The project consisted of developing about 20 acres of existing Plant Nursery, pasture land wood land area into an FEDEX distribution center. Phase 1, consisted of preparing the design for a 120,000 SF building which included the civil design for the geometry layout of the building with parking and the storm drainage with retention ponds and the paving and grading design. The water system was connected to an existing water main near the site and the sanitary sewer design consisted of the design of a lift station design and force main to an off site existing force main to the east. The site plans were approved for construction in 2005 and the site was developed and operational by 2006. The picture to the right shows the north wet retention pond and the new FedEx facility after construction. The civil engineering permits were obtained by H & H Engineering.
