Woods at Golden Given

Habitat for Humanity

Since 2004, Apex has acted as the primary design consultant for many of their housing developments.

Apex Engineering is proud to be associated with Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity and their unique mission to partner with families in need to build and own simple, decent, affordable homes in safe communities. 

Most recently, we created the site development plans for the Woods at Golden Given, a 30 unit planned development district located in south Pierce County and is the first development in Pierce County to utilize the incentives of Title 18E.65 for affordable housing projects.

It is also Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity's first low-impact development (LID) project. The 7.3 acre site contains wetland areas that will be preserved and will have a large common green space in the center of the site that retains many of the existing trees. The development will also include a "common house" that can be used for large social events, a sport court, tetherball court, tot lots, a community garden space, and a sports field. Some of the LID features include rain gardens to control and infiltrate roof runoff, and pervious pavement systems for the drive aisles, parking areas, and sidewalks that eliminate the need for stormwater facilities to collect, convey, treat and release the stormwater runoff.
