CGA assisted U-Haul with the completion of a new 3-story, 24,000 SF climate-controlled self-storage facility in Ames.  The building is located along the Ioway Creek floodway and was placed to maximize the site without disturbing the floodway.  Design included placing the first floor 3’ above the 100-year floodplain, loading docks, pedestrian access, parking, access road, below-ground stormwater management, above-ground stormwater management, native plantings, landscaping, site utilities, public storm sewer re-routing,  and city site plan approval negotiations to include access easements.
