Alstom Power Machines

Chattanooga, TN

LEED Silver

The irrigation system needed to be designed in a way that would earn LEED Water Efficiency Credits 1.1 and 1.2.  To accomplish this all mixed landscape plant material was irrigated with drip irrigation and a moisture sensor based control system was used to manage the system.  We assisted in the design development of the 300,000 gallon storm water storage system.  We developed the pumping system and control package to work with the storm water supply.

East 54

Chapel Hill, NC


This 5 building mixed use development’s LEED goals were to achieve WE Credits 1.1 and 1.2.  This was done by designing and irrigation system that took into consideration the varying micro climates and plant materials on site.  All of the mixed landscape plantings are irrigated via drip irrigation.  The entire system is pressure regulated to ensure the Distribution Uniformities (DU) are as good as possible.  The irrigation control system is a soil moisture based system with 6 sensors with the site.  The water supply is a 67,000 gallon cistern.  We worked with the civil engineers during the site design development to determine the landscapes water requirements, water filtration, and pumping system.

Project Spirit

Alpharetta, GA

LEED Silver

We earned both WE Credits 1.1 and 1.2 on this project by employing highly efficient irrigation design and components with a rain harvesting system.  The irrigation system irrigated all mixed planting with drip.  The sprinklers on site are highly uniform with rotary sprinkler DU greater than .75 and sprays greater than .65.  The system is controlled via a soil moisture control system with 4 sensors within the site.  The water supply is a 40,000 gallon cistern.  We designed the 60 GPM pumping system with automated back up well and potable cistern fill supplies and all necessary controls.


Murfreesboro, TN


This mixed use development earned LEED We Credit 1.1 and 1.2.  The water supply is reclaimed wastewater provided by the City of Murfreesboro.  The irrigation system design took into consideration multiple micro-climates on the site and irrigated each separately.  The mixed planting on site is irrigated with drip irrigation.  The turf areas are irrigated with sprinklers having DU’s greater than .65.  The irrigation system is controlled via a soil moisture based control system with 4 soil moisture sensor in key locations on site.

Developed irrigation system design and specifications for an 8 field baseball complex.  Water supply is 320 GPM.  System is controlled via a soil moisture control system to conserve water.

Florence Tennis Complex

Florence, SC

Developed irrigation system design and specifications for an 18 tennis court complex with a joining landscape.  The water supply is a 250 gpm pump station drawing water from the storm water retention basin.  All landscape plant material is irrigated via drip irrigation.  The system is controlled by a soil moisture control system.

Florida State University Intramural Fields

Tallahassee, FL

Developed irrigation system design and specifications for 4 baseball fields and 6 soccer fields.  Water supply is 800 gpm and the system is controlled via a central control system.



Mobile, AL

The goal of the entire project was to create a sustainable landscape that was maintained by a highly efficient irrigation system. 

We developed the irrigation system design, pumping systems, central control system, and specifications for the master planned community with over 3 miles of irrigated roadways and numerous parks.  All landscape planting areas are irrigated with drip irrigation, all small turf areas with pressure regulated spray sprinklers, and the larger turf areas with pressure regulated highly efficient rotary sprinklers.  The entire site is controlled by a soil moisture control system with a central control communication backbone.

Breakfast Point

Panama City Beach, FL

We provided an irrigation design and specifications for this master planned community with over 2 miles of irrigated roadways, parks, and trails.  All landscape planting materials are irrigated via drip irrigation.  The turf areas are irrigated with pressure regulated spray or rotary sprinklers.  The control system will be a central control system as phases are developed.

Valdosta State University

Valdosta, GA

The University has a 35 year old irrigation system that was highly inefficient.  The State of Georgia mandated a 20% reduction in water use by state institutions.  To attain the water savings we developed irrigation system design and specifications for 2 city block of the central campus to replace the existing outdated system.  The design and system components focused on water conservation and management for the new irrigation system.  All large turf areas were designed to achieve a Distribution Uniformity (DU) of .75 or better.  All small turf areas are irrigated with pressure regulated spray sprinklers with DU greater than .65.  The control system for the site is stand alone moisture sensor based controllers that communicate via the on campus intranet.


Franklin, TN

The McEwen development is a mixed use community with office, retail and residential.  The goal of the irrigation system was to use water as precisely as possible. All irrigation systems in the community are managed with soil moisture based control systems for maximum water conservation.  The irrigation systems are designed to match plant types and localized hydro zones.  All sprinklers are pressure regulated and all landscape plant material is irrigated with drip irrigation.

State Employee’s Credit Union (SECU)

North Carolina

The lead architect for the development of the SECU’s was experiencing large water uses and poor plant health on the newly developed credit unions.  They were looking for a way to decrease water use and improve plant health.  We partnered with the architect to develop a water conservative irrigation system that would promote better plant health.  The typical credit union irrigation system design now shows all mixed plants being irrigated with drip irrigation on a hydro-zone by hydro-zone basis.  The rotary sprinklers used have DU’s greater than .75.  The control system typically is a soil moisture sensor based system.  This type of irrigation system gives the site manager the opportunity to save 50-70 percent of the water typically used to irrigated their sites in the past.




Franklin, TN

Developed a master plan irrigation system for the Westhaven community inclusive of water requirements, pumping systems, and control system.  At the outset of the project the site had one pump station that was over burdened and a mixture of irrigation controls.  We analyzed the water requirements for the entire site, determined potential pumping system locations, and developed the flow requirements for each pump station to meet the landscape future demand.  A complete mainline pipe network was developed for the site to aid in future construction development.  A study was done to determine the best centralized control system for the site to allow for daily adjustments to be made to the systems operating schedules to meet climatic requirements.

Holding Village

Wake Forest, NC

The City of Wake Forest does not allow landscapes to be irrigated with the potable water supply.  Holding Village, a mixed use community, needed a water source to maintain the community’s common landscape along with the private landscapes.  Working with the civil engineering firm we developed a community wide irrigation water supply system.  The water supply for the site is a 16 acre lake into which all storm water will be diverted to.  The irrigation system consists of a 1200 GPM pump station, mainline structure through out the community, and a centralized control system to manage the dispersion of the water to the correct locations at the right time.  To ensure water was used only when necessary the control system is based on a series of moisture sensors through out the site.

Each of the private residences on site is provided an irrigation connection to their lot.  Water is provided to each lot on specific days and times for a specific amount of time.


405 Sheridan

Highland Park, IL


This estate property north of Chicago obtained it’s LEED rating in part due to the irrigation system and rain harvesting system designs.  The rain harvesting system collects rain from just over 60% or the roof surfaces, the drives and hard scape.  We worked directly with the engineer in the design development phase to get the water from the collection points in to a 20,000 gallon “Rain Tank” cistern.  The irrigation system uses drip for all planting, highly efficient sprinklers for turf areas, and a soil moisture sensor based control system to ensure water is only applied when it is needed.
