As sub consultants to Brudis Associates Civil Engineers, L.S. Grim Consulting Engineers was responsible for all plumbing and electrical design issues associated with site lighting improvements, landscape, and landscape irrigation systems for the historic Maryland State House in Annapolis, Maryland. The lighting portion of the project consisted of removing existing colonial style wooden poles with incandescent lamp type fixtures, which surrounded the State House grounds, and replacing them with historically accurate reproduction metal poles with metal halide lamps. The lighting work also involved the removal and replacement of the existing pole bases and upgrading the power wiring associated to the various lighting circuits. We coordinated the work with all the historical agencies associated with overseeing the State House grounds. This was a very high visibility project and the lighting design needed to fit the colonial historical constraints of downtown Annapolis.
The second portion of the project, which would be the plumbing systems, involved the complete removal and replacement of the existing landscape irrigation system and the installation of a new landscape irrigation system for the entire State House grounds. L.S. Grim Consulting Engineers was responsible for all issues associated with the irrigation system. We performed the work in close coordination with maintenance staff of the State House grounds to insure that proper coverage was provided for all the planting beds, shrubbery, and general grass areas of the site.
