Stormwater Management for Apartments & Office Buildings

Serving Maryland, Virginia & Washington, DC

Today’s changing weather patterns are bringing new landscape drainage problems for owners of commercial and investment property. Hundred-year floods actually happen much more often than the name implies. Extreme weather is also quite common. Even a typical rainstorm can pose a risk to your property without proper stormwater management systems in place.

Our engineers and land management experts design, build, retrofit, maintain, and repair stormwater systems. Our customized drainage solutions for apartment complexes and office buildings, help owners deal effectively with storm runoff.

We Solve Stormwater Drainage Problems for Apartment Complexes in MD, DC & VA

Our runoff control designs for VA, DC, and MD building owners may include:

  • Installing permeable concrete that allows controlled stormwater drainage during and after a storm.
  • Landscaping with plants and ground cover specifically chosen to help absorb water and use storm runoff effectively.
  • Directing water, via channels designed into the property, to a safer area for water accumulation and dispersion, like a nearby natural or purpose-built stormwater management pond.
  • Changing the elevation of part of the property, to direct rainwater away from the structure, helping to ensure common areas are passable (and help avoid flooding).
  • And other drainage strategies, tailored to the unique needs of your property.

  • Annual property inspection to ensure storm drainage systems are working properly.
  • After-storm inspection and repair of your stormwater control systems.

  • And more.

The Benefits of Stormwater Management Systems for Apartment Complexes & Office Buildings

With proper stormwater management structures in place, you can:

  • Protect your property investment by avoiding damage, like structural rot, mold, and landscape destruction. Effective drainage systems minimize water damage repair costs and insurance claims, as well as future property insurability issues.
  • Avoid citations from local agencies, like NOVs (notices of violation), telling you your property violates rules about handling excessive storm runoff. This could mean that contaminants, carried by stormwater, risk polluting local lakes, streams, or water supplies. (If you have already received notice, we can help you retrofit your stormwater systems to comply with local health, environmental and building codes.)
  • Support the wellbeing of your local community.  Proper stormwater management, which could include stormwater detention facilities or stormwater treatment systems, helps you avoid damaging the surrounding environment due to improperly designed or neglected drainage systems on your property.
  • Keep commercial tenants and apartment renters happier. With proper runoff management and drainage, these individuals/families and businesses enjoy a safer, better quality of life–and continue leasing your property.

Now, our property is compliant with the EPA and we have a great partner to keep us maintained on storm water regulations over time."
