The Solana at Waldwick
A BLISSFUL WAY TO LIVE
Dresdner Robin has been Formation-Shelbourne’s Site Civil Engineering consultant of their New Jersey senior living development projects for many years. Previous projects include facilities in Roseland and Marlboro. The Solana at Waldwick is their most recent senior living project underway in Waldwick, New Jersey. The project will consist of constructing a 2-story, 79-unit facility with an underground parking deck and associated site improvements.
Special care was needed during the design phase to ensure the facility would blend with the surrounding residential properties and result in a benefit to the overall community. Additionally, to reduce the runoff and infiltration impact of the facility’s underground detention basin, a unique approach was taken by wrapping the entire drainage facility with a liner to help alleviate an existing high ground water condition causing water in the neighboring residential basements.
Dresdner Robin prepared detailed site plan drawings and documents utilized for the successful procurement of municipal site plan approval. In addition to local approvals, Dresdner Robin also obtained the required County Site Plan approval for a road widening along the site frontage and Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Certification from the Bergen County Soil Conservation District.
In addition to the Engineering services, we also provided Surveying services. This included surveying the existing conditions of the site, subdivision of multiple lots for a lot consolidation, design of conceptual site plan layout, grading, drainage, utilities, lighting, stormwater management, and off-site improvements within the county right-of-way, as well as providing construction administration services. All the hard work Dresdner Robin put into this facility will be seen through the facility itself, but also greatly appreciated by the residents.
