Site Grading Plan Development

This week I received a heads up courtesy of the surveyor working on the Oakley Home 2.0 @ 3874 Isabella project, that the City of Cincinnati plans examiners have been very stringent lately in wanting to see exterior grading elevations on building plans in addition to the formal survey required for permit. That said, I spent a good amount of time in the Revit model the past few days updating the topography and generating an architectural grading plan showing this information. I also went through and changed out the concrete site wall surrounding the basement patio to now be an Allan Block site wall, which is the product that what was used for the retaining wall in front of the Starter Home 2.0 Pleasant Ridge house. The Allan Block has a nicer look and is much easier to install than a poured concrete site wall, so it makes a lot of sense to make this change.
