BHB provided civil engineering and land surveying services for Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas (MMBNT). MMBNT is a nonprofit organization that collects breastmilk from healthy nursing mothers who have surplus to be donated. Originally located in the Child Study Center building, MMBNT relocated to the medical district in 2011 and again in 2019 to a new facility in southwest Forth Worth. Mothers’ Milk Bank was in need of more refrigeration space, so the organization acquired this building with intentions of renovating and more than doubling the building size.

The civil scope for this project included demolition, paving, and plumbing services. The land surveying team provided a boundary survey, topographic survey, and construction staking. By installing steps, BHB’s civil engineers overcame grading challenges caused by the 9,200 square-foot addition being a foot higher than the existing building’s finished floor. This solution successfully connected the old facility with the new addition while only demolishing what was absolutely necessary for this project. In addition to the building renovation, a playground was added near the pond area.
