Coastal Volkswagen

Hanover, MA

Project Overview

MEG was responsible for all aspects of the design and permitting of this approximate 40,000 square foot (s.f.) automobile retail sales and service facility for Coastal Volkswagen located on approximately 2.6 acres of land at Saturn Drive off Washington Street in Hanover, Massachusetts.   The redevelopment involved the renovation of the existing building, the reconfiguration and expansion of the existing parking area to provide an additional 33 (thirty-three) inventory parking spaces, stormwater management facilities, minor utility relocation, site grading and landscaping.  The design incorporated extensive subsurface stormwater management systems and low impact sustainable stormwater management features to renovate and mitigate peaks rates of runoff in order to fully comply with the DEP’s Stormwater Management Policy and Town of Hanover standards.  The project required a special permit and site plan approval under the Hanover Zoning By-Law, Order of Conditions from the Hanover Conservation Commission and the preparation of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) through EPA’s National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Program.  MEG also provided construction phase administration and inspection services to ensure that the final product was consistent with the value engineered design.
