UNC Chapel Hill - The Pit Area Sidewalks (Chapel Hill, NC)
A project that was extremely complicated not necessarily for it's design, but because it was completely remaking one of the busiest pedestrian areas in NC. Work took place over (3) years in phases and with limited access for equipment needed to bring in 3,000+ tons of materials. Heavy duty pavers over a vehicular base serve as a fire lane and permeable pavers with open aggregate base are installed over deep soil cells built around the trees. The Pit floor itself was left mostly untouched to protect the two large Overcup Oak trees.
PDC's Scope of Work: 55,000 square feet of brick pavers, permeable pavers, stone base, masonry steps
