Larson Design Group (LDG) provided site design and landscape architecture services for a new Panera Bread Bakery and Café at Basin Street in Williamsport, PA. The site design was provided for John Albarano of Jay Two Associates. They constructed and leased the building and lot to Panera. The project was designed and approved on an accelerated timeline to meet the expectation of Panera for opening the restaurant.
Site design services included an ALTA survey, topographic survey, site layout including evaluation of alternatives, grading, stormwater management, soil erosion control, site lighting photometric plan, landscaping plan, and coordination with PennDOT to obtain a Highway Occupancy Permit.
I am very pleased with the quality of work and professionalism I received from Larson Design Group. They kept this project on a fast-track schedule and we accomplished an amazing amount of design work and municipal approvals in less than three months. That is an unusual occurrence in today’s heavily regulated environment. The process moves very smoothly when you have such competent professionals.
