Appian provided the Civil Design for the Triangle Tyre site. Representing Edgecombe County, Appian has taken on the role of managing the project for the construction of the “Pad Ready Site” for a two tire production lines totaling 2.3 million square feet. The northern line will produce passenger car tires and the other truck tires. Appian also serves as technical liaison between Edgecombe County/the NCDOT and Triangle Tyre of Weihai, China. Upon completion, the plant is estimated to cost $680 million dollars and provide 800 jobs to the region. Appian has tracked construction and provided weekly site recon and imagery using our fleet of drones. This 3D digital terrain video is an accurate representation of the site conditions of the pad up at the point in time it was flown. Building pads and property lines have been overlaid into the site.
Tarboro Commerce Center
Appian was charged with developing a marketing video for a 60,000 sf shell building proposed to be located at the Tarboro Commerce Center in Tarboro, NC. The video, based on a 3D digital terrain model, accurately depicts the conditions in and around the site with the 60,000 sf building and site improvements set on to the site. The video also shows a “ghosted” image of a 60,000 sf future expansion. The xyz aerial imagery, used as the base for the model, was flown by Appian and uploaded into the video model. Working with the builder, the elevation is an exact representation of the building proposed.

Conveyors, Building Framing, Existing Floor plans, Industrial Pipework…Appian provides high definition 3D scanning services to obtain as-built models of your plant or building. Millions of point measurements are made from a safe distance, inaccessible odd shaped utilities documented, and walk-through point I-clouds to help our clients better visualize the true as-built condition of any facility or is provided.
Candlewood Culvert Replacement, Design and Inspection
Client: City of Rocky Mount
Appian provided hydraulic and structural design of a multi-barrel RCBC to replace a grossly undersized CMP culvert. Environmental permits were applied for and acquired for the placement of the culvert in a mapped flood plain and an environmentally sensitive stream.
Transfer Station Tipping Floor Replacement
Client: City of Rocky Mount, NC
Appian provided the research and design for the replacement of the worn reinforced concrete floor at the City’s Solid Waste Transfers Station. Years of wear to the floor surface had worn the concrete floor down 7 inches in a bowl-like shape. A proprietary mix was settled on and wear plates incorporated into the new floor to provide instantaneous wear depth measurement. Push walls armor was also replaced.
Bascule Gate Hydraulic Cylinder Replacement
Tar River Water Supply Reservoir
Client: City of Rocky Mount, NC
Appian was called upon to develop the somewhat specialized gate stabilization design, methodology and specifications involving the replacement of a total of 6 hydraulic bascule gate lift cylinders. Temporary braces were designed to protect workers. Barges with cranes were used on the south gate and a rubber-tired crane lifted and placed on the walkway gantry for the north gate cylinder removal and replacement. Cylinders were removed, the gates temporary braced for a potential 100-year flood event , the cylinders rebuilt and then replaced.
Kingsboro CSX Select Site
Edgecombe County, NC
Client: Carolinas Gateway Partnership and Edgecombe County
FEMA Elevation Projects
Clients: The NC Counties of Beaufort, Pamlico, Pender, Hyde, Craven, Catawba; the Towns of Carolina Beach, Topsail Beach, Windsor, to name a few.
Appian provided the due diligence and developed a unique Geospatial civil package for marketing a 1500-acre Industrial Park for Edgecombe County. Our services included providing services for assessing and compiling information pertinent for site assessment (from a distance) by prospective industrial clients. A marketing books was developed depicting for example, existing utilities, delineated and mapped wetlands, hydrological features, traffic planning (truck and rail), maps showing location and connectivity to US airports, rail facilities, deep sea ports and US Interstate Hwy Transportation facilities. Helicopter and drone flights were conducted and a marketing video was developed in house. The books and videos have been distributed to prospective clients in India, the UK, Europe, and the US. A version of the video has been developed close-captioned with translation into the Mandarin Chinese language.
With a history in Flood Plain Hydrological and Hydraulic analysis (HEC1, HEC2 and HEC-RAS), for more than 15 years Appian has provided structural site assessment of existing flooded structures, designed foundations and stabilization for homes and businesses elevated within AE and VE zones in accordance with both NCDEM and FEMA guidelines. Some projects not only involved design but also bidding, project management and inspection services.
Westridge Shopping Center
Existing Conditions and Site Survey
Client: Highland Company of Rocky Mount
In July 2022, Appian was asked to inspect the existing conditions of the Westridge Shopping Center in Rocky Mount, NC. The site inspection consisted of a Lidar scan of the structure that produced an "as-built" 3D point cloud of the building, a visual inspection of the roof, mechanical, electrical and plumbing, and overall conditions of the walls and pavement. At the conclusion of the inspection, a report was written of the assessment and recommendation then submitted to the owner.
