BHB provided civil engineering and land surveying services for 5T Ranch, a 55-acre residential development in the growing community of Argyle, Texas that included 90 quarter to half-acre lots for single-family custom homes. Located on Country Club Road, the development features 18 acres of park land (32 percent open space) including soccer fields, a playground, picnic areas, and concrete walking trails.

A two-phase project, BHB’s civil engineering team was tasked with designing the detention pond, lots, sanitary sewer lift station, the entry to the development, and a large open space in phase one, as well as the completion of a FEMA study and map revisions. The detention pond was designed so that it could be used as the major active recreational area for the development. Phase two consisted of additional residential lots, as well as a large open space at the back of the neighborhood complete with winding concrete walking trails connecting to the remainder of the open space areas. BHB’s services for this development also included platting, and boundary and topographic surveys.

While the development was being built, Denton County was in the process of making upgrades to Country Club Road. This proved to be a challenge for the team and required extensive coordination due to the connections with the new roadway, as well as the drainage modifications that the County was making.
