An experienced irrigation design professional will afford the golf club savings in both time and money in the long run. As a design/build contractor, Environmental Solutions uses the latest technology to convey existing, proposed and installed irrigation, drainage or site construction projects. Our design process typically begins with a physical evaluation of the current systems, turf grass condition and soil analysis. We utilize existing imagery, topography, orthography or in-house GPS services to create a base map from which to design and convey the project intention. Designing an effective system requires knowledge of pipe hydraulics, zoning techniques, head spacing, wire sizing, and the efficiency, features, and reliability of various manufacturers rotary sprinklers, valves, and controllers. The cost to repair a single error in any of these areas can easily be higher that the fee charged by an experienced designer.
In planning a system, the designer will give a great deal of consideration in choosing the most appropriate equipment since each project has its own specific product, budget and cultural requirements. In addition to traditional project development, Environmental Solutions offers value engineering options in the form of alternative installation methods, material selection and specialized custom equipment.
Using GPS (global positioning systems) in record documentation is the final tool all turf managers need to make full use of the capitol investments. The record drawing and data provide users with reproducible reprographic reference, spatial analysis, efficient repair, staff training aid, comparison of project quantities, convenient field books and central control programming base.
Site planning, permitting conveyance, central control programming, interactive map generation, drainage engineering, water storage systems, event planning and feature architecture are some of the additional design services offered.
