Case Study: Membership Wholesale Club

Membership Wholesale Club
Fayetteville, AR

CCE designed and developed the site of a membership wholesale club in Fayetteville, AR with several environmental challenges. The site was a “brownfield” of a previous development with contaminated soil, compounded by its adjacency to protected wetlands and a cold-water creek inhabited by an endangered fish species. CCE integrated numerous green technologies to meet these environmental challenges, including:

  • Rainwater harvesting system for the site’s drip-irrigation and non-potable water
  • Soil/root aeration system to protect trees from construction damage
  • Water-wise xeriscape landscaping
  • Bio-swales, a Hydrodynamic Separator, and a 2-tiered constructed storm water wetland to filter and remove the VOC’s, total suspended solids and other pollutants from the water column before discharging into the local stream system
  • Constructed storm water wetlands for local wildlife habitation

CCE worked extensively with the Arkansas Audobon Society throughout site design and development, ultimately earning their endorsement.
