FloWorks International, a Houston-based supplier of stainless steel pipes and couplings, broke ground in a September 2015 ceremony. The 41-acre development is part of a 121.6-acre reinvestment zone the City of Pearland created in 2012 to encourage industrial development along the Main Street corridor. The estimated assessed value for the ultimate development will total approximately $18 million. The Development for FloWorks International will be furnished with a pipe laydown yard and a 220,000 sq. ft. tilt wall warehouse and fabricating facility. The project consists of 208,000 square feet of office and manufacturing space, an 8.5-acre detention basin with a pump station, and two access driveways. Once the building envelope is finalized, the contractor will tie the site pavement into the existing asphalt road, connecting with State Highway 35.
Landev Engineers, Inc. provided civil engineering services for the design of approximately 4,900 LF of potable and fire supply water lines, 1,100 LF of sanitary sewer design, and 6,800 LF of storm sewer collection system, two storm water detention basins connected by a drainage channel, storm water pump station, laydown yards, and parking facilities. The design consisted of on-site paving, grading & drainage plan, agency & project coordination, storm water pollution prevention plan, storm water quality plan, construction administration and plan & profile drawings for the design of the off-site sanitary sewer connection across State Highway 35. The sanitary sewer connection was within the Texas Department of Transportation’s jurisdiction and required the appropriate review and permitting process. The remainder of the design was reviewed and permitted through the City of Pearland and Brazoria County Drainage District No. 4 (BC DD 4). Coordination with BC DD 4 was required due to outfall requirements prescribed by The District to their facilities from the detention basin. Landev was additionally involved in the coordination with the traffic engineering sub-consultant for completion of the traffic impact analysis and traffic signal modifications.
