Site development engineering for commercial and industrial sites involves numerous elements, to meet the unique needs of each site, often including factors such as truck access, high-capacity fire flow, parking analysis, enhanced stormwater treatment, oil/water separation, sewage pre-treatment, loading dock design, and off-site street and traffic control improvements.  APC has extensive experience designing and managing a wide variety commercial development projects, including business and industrial parks, retail centers, shipping terminals, storage facilities, and restaurants.

Bakerview Square

Bakerview Square


Bakerview Square is a commercial site on 9.5 acres located in the City of Bellingham. The site contains approximately 104,000 square feet of commercial retail buildings. The storm water is treated in low impact development plant filters and engineered wetland cells, and stored underground in concrete vaults within the parking area. APC prepared the full site civil design for access, grading, utilities, street frontage improvements, and parking as well as the stormwater management system.
