Project Scope and Vision

Nestled within the verdant landscapes of Wake County, the Mitchell Mill Development was conceptualized to offer 382 lots across a sweeping canvas of 142 acres, at a construction density of 3 dwelling units per acre. The vision was clear: to forge a community that not only complements the steep terrain but also preserves the integrity of the wetlands and streams that characterize this idyllic location.

Charting the Challenges

The project was not without its trials, presenting us with challenges that tested the bounds of our expertise:

Crafting the Solutions

Our team at AXA Engineers responded with solutions as innovative as they are respectful of our ecological commitments:

The key to maintaining standard slope requirements was to adjust the roadway profiles, incorporating retaining walls that not only provided the necessary grading for driveways but also added a layer of visual appeal and structural reinforcement.

By positioning retaining walls along the perimeters of wetlands, stream buffers, and electrical easements, we effectively separated the development from these protected areas, ensuring zero encroachment.

Swales were graded alongside the retaining walls, serving as critical components in our stormwater management strategy – preventing water overrun and protecting the ecological sanctuaries adjacent to the development.
