|Client||Wal*Mart Stores Inc|
Vanasse & Associates, Inc. (VAI) has successfully permitted over 50 Walmart Stores in the New England market. VAI has completed initial Due Diligence Studies, Traffic Impact and Access Studies and Roadway Construction Documents. Walmart has engaged VAI in the permitting of new stores, as well as expansion of existing stores to super centers. The Portsmouth, New Hampshire project was an expansion of an existing store to a 191,000 sf Super Center. Based upon actual traffic counts at existing Super Center stores, VAI successfully presented to the City and State that the expansion traffic would not significantly impact Route 1 and Walmart was obligated to contribute towards future roadway improvements along Route 1. VAI attended many meetings with the City including the Traffic and Safety Committee, the Technical Advisory Committee and the City Planning Board. VAI was also assisted in developing roadway agreements between the City, State and Walmart.
