background

Honeywell International operates an aerospace manufacturing facility on a 12-acre industrial campus in Redmond, Washington. As an industrial site with a history of contaminated soils, Honeywell is required by the City of Redmond to maintain an industrial NPDES permit, regulated under the NPDES Municipal Stormwater Permit (MS4) program.

challenge

Campus buildings surrounding a little-used employee courtyard were frequently flooding, threatening sensitive manufacturing equipment and systems. Adjacent pedestrian walkways were too narrow for easy equipment movement and not compliant with current ADA standards.

solution

Pacific Stormwater redesigned the employee courtyard for better stormwater drainage to alleviate water intrusion in the surrounding buildings and to be more aesthetically appealing to encourage employee use. The courtyard was designed to slope away from the buildings. Stormwater was collected, redirected away from buildings, and the discharge was diffused to a nearby open grassy area for infiltration. The new courtyard will provide Honeywell employees a shaded break area, an accessory canopy structure for team activities, relaxing landscaped park area with benches and a patio area for lunches. New pedestrian ramps and landings were designed that meet current ADA standards, and are wide enough to allow easy equipment transport between buildings.
