Campanelli Business Park Bellingham

Project Overview
This project is one of many that KEG has worked with Campanelli of Braintree MA. Campanelli is a long standing third generation land development, managing and construction firm located in Braintree. They have developed greater than 22 million square feet of building. Campanelli plans and develops office, warehouse manufacturing spaces and multifamily housing. KEG has provided the majority of their civil engineering and land surveying needs for the past 15 years including their business parks in Middleborough and Westfield.

Campanelli Business Park of Bellingham is a two building, two lots 427,500 SF development located on approximately 85 acres adjacent to 495 and the Charles River. The property was the former location of a proposed EMC Campus project that never was constructed.

KEG led all aspects of the site design and permitting for the project. KEG provided topographic and property line surveys; performed due diligence/ planning level studies; provided civil/site design including site layout, grading, and utilities; coordinated transportation, wetlands and noise mitigation planning; prepared all permit applications; coordinated with the Town representatives; and represented the project through the public hearing process.

The project involved complex local and state permitting. State permits included Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act Notice of Project Change process and the Mass DOT access permitting process. Local permits include permits through the Conservation Commission and Planning Board.

The project was complicated by proximity to nearby residences, by its location on a scenic road and by it adjacency to the Charles River. The project required many hearings with the Planning Board and Conservation Commission. It required the implementation of specific visual and sound mitigation measures. The stormwater management system design required particular care because of its location next to the Charles River and its associated EPA TMDL requirements.

KEG used Low Impact Development principles by incorporating bio swales and rain gardens to facilitate groundwater infiltration and limit project runoff. Large subsurface recharge systems were required to comply with local Conservation Commission regulations.
