23 Feb East Argent Parkway and Regional Pump Station Wins Engineering Excellence Award
Doubling the size of Hardeeville, South Carolina, Thomas & Hutton played an integral role in the successful planning, design, and construction of roadway, stormwater treatment, water, and wastewater infrastructure for the East Argent Planned Development District (PDD). The project has received a Merit Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Georgia (ACEC Georgia) Engineering Excellence Awards. The Engineering Excellence Awards are ACEC Georgia’s annual design competition recognizing engineering achievements designed by teams in the state of Georgia that demonstrate the highest degree of merit and ingenuity.
The East Agent PDD is tucked between U.S. 278 and Hwy 17 in one of the Lowcountry’s fastest-growing corridors. The 7,350-acre community is slated to include 9,500 residential homes and 1.2-million square feet of commercial space upon completion. To service planned future development, Thomas & Hutton was retained by Argent Land Holdings to design the East Argent Parkway main loop road, a four-lane divided highway, and associated water and sewer utilities to service parcels off the roadway. Thomas & Hutton also designed the East Argent Regional Pump Station, which will provide conveyance to about 65% of the development.
This achievement would not have been possible without our partners at Inland Capital (Argent Land Holdings) who entrusted us with their vision of enhancing quality of life and economic opportunity in the Lowcountry by creating a community compatible with the region’s unique environmental and historic nature. Congratulations to the T&H team on their hard work and to our project partners: Newkirk Environmental, GHD, Koontz Jones Design, JH Heirs Construction, Brockington & Associates, and the Law Office of Lewis J. Hamet.
