The Grove is a Planned Unit Development (PUD) located in Baton Rouge south of the Mall of Louisiana along Ward’s Creek and home to Ochsner Health Center. The project includes a new five-story medical office building and ambulatory surgery center. The new clinic is located along the I-10 Bluebonnet/Siegen corridor on approximately 25 acres of property as part of the High Grove development near the Mall of Louisiana and fronting Interstate 10.
DDG was responsible for project management, site development, and permitting including the design of the public street with a roundabout and all drainage onsite drainage infrastructure. The drainage infrastructure was designed to convey offsite runoff through the property via a large diameter storm drain that discharges into Ward’s Creek. The sewer pump station size accommodates the medical building, future flows from the adjacent undeveloped land, and existing flows from the adjacent existing neighborhood. The existing sewer pump station serving the neighborhood was decommissioned as part of the project.
