Vistas at Water's Edge

Teton County, Idaho

In the heart of Teton Valley Idaho, this 135-acre residential development was designed to seamlessly blend in with the natural terrain. Building envelopes were designed to provide protected views for homeowners within the development as well as surrounding landowners. Land planning, surveying and civil engineering services include enhancing the exiting topography to create a system of ponds and streams that have a recirculation system that also provides irrigation water to each lot and the common areas. Fire protection is provided by dry hydrants that are fed by three of the larger ponds on the site. The road system was designed to cross the
streams in two places and multi-plate arches where used in place of bridges to reduce construction costs and maintain the appearance of a bridge.
