Work Scope Walsh Engineering Associates, Inc. worked together with Home Start and Kaplan Thompson Architects in developing a site plan for a three-unit affordable housing subdivision on Peaks Island, Maine. WEA managed the municipal permitting for the 0.37-acre site; this process included City of Portland Contract Zone Agreement (CZA) review and approval as well as City of Portland Subdivision review and approval. WEA provided project management from permitting through construction administration. In this capacity, WEA ensured all site work met the criteria outlined in both Maine State Housing Authority’s (MSHA) “Construction Services Development Manual” and MSHA’s “Green Building Standards.”
