The Cottages at Cathedral Square
LOCATION: Belleville, IL
CLIENT: Metropolitan Housing Development Corporation and Touchette Regional Hospital
Senior living facility engineering services enabled the developers of the Cottages at Cathedral Square to convert a dilapidated neighborhood adjacent to St. Peter’s Cathedral in downtown Belleville into a 32-unit senior living housing complex. The facility also features a community center and on-site medical assistance. Prior to developing the site into usable space, TWM performed an ALTA survey to determine existing conditions and easements. Then engineers provided design of the civil site plan, which included the buildings and parking lot geometric plan, delineating walks, drives, parking, and curb and gutter; utility plan; grading plan; erosion control and seeding plan; storm sewer plan; sanitary sewer plan; and domestic water service plan. The team also assisted with the bidding process, prepared permits, coordinated with utilities, and provided construction phase services.
