The Bohemian Hotel

Biltmore Village, NC
Civil Site Engineering, Surveying, Environmental Assessment and Remediation, Project Management

BEA performed the initial environmental site assessments on the site as it had been an automotive gas station and service center for over 70 years. The project called for an upscale “boutique hotel” planned “curb to curb” on the existing site with below ground parking.

The groundwater was contaminated with petroleum VOCs. BEA engineered the groundwater dewatering and remediation system for the subgrade construction. BEA then engineered and permitted the site construction through the City of Asheville’s Historical Review Committee and Technical Review Committee process.

As the hotel was to be a focal point in Biltmore Village, at the entrance to the Biltmore Estate, the project was heavily scrutinized. Project management included relocation of underground utilities.
