Thousand Oaks Old Town West

Project Description

The Old Town West project was comprised of the design of street improvements for Los Robles Road between Live Oak Street and Fairview Road, and Fairview Road between Crescent Way and Royal Oaks.  Due to existing geometrics and to meeting the goal of a continuous ADA compliant walkway, it was decided to extend the design of street improvements down Royal Oaks Drive.  The neighborhood was very rural with minimal curb, gutter and sidewalk improvements and virtually no street lighting with substantial encroachment of property owner into the Public right-of-way.

Scope of Services

The Project was designed in two Phases, Phase 1 being Preliminary Design and Phase 2 being final Design.  Phase 1 included topographic survey of the Project, identification of utility issues and conflicts, identification of existing R.O.W. conflicts and several alternatives for the City to select from as well as associated Opinions of Estimated Construction Costs.

Once an alternative was selected to meet the desired construction budget final design was performed that included but was not limited to curb, gutter, sidewalk, driveways and associated aprons, utility relocation (SCE), gas and water service relocation, road re-profiling, street light improvements, storm drain improvements and substantial rights-of-way entry.  Numerous offsite and driveway conforms were incorporated into the Project with great success.  The Project was completed in late 2012.

This Project impacted numerous single family residences and some apartments.  Coordination was extensive as well as community input on the Project.

City of SB Carrillo Hill Sidewalk

Project Description

For the Carrillo Hill Sidewalk Improvements Phase 1 Project, the City of Santa Barbara was interested in providing a continuous pathway for at least one side of Carrillo Street and Meigs Road to enhance and increase pedestrian travel and to increase transit use by providing better access to bus stops.  The project consisted of both curb adjacent and meandering concrete sidewalk, landscaped parkway, curb and gutter and access ramps at three (3) intersections on the north side of the street. Retaining walls were also constructed to accommodate existing topographical variations.  A number of conforms were also incorporated at various properties to accommodate existing conditions. The project also included landscaping and street lighting.

This project required the coordination of Civil, Landscape Architect, Structural, Electrical and Traffic Engineering disciplines.

Gill’s Onions Plant Expansion

Scope of Services

We provided civil engineering services, in conjunction with Hartigan Foley, the site Architect, for civil design and preparation of construction drawings and technical specifications for site grading, drainage, paving, public street and storm drainage improvements, and provided a hydrologic and hydraulic drainage report.

In addition, we also provided construction phase services including construction observation for this project. Since the area that was disturbed by construction was greater than one-acre, we prepared both a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan and N.O.I. required by the State Water Resources Control Board. Our in house Qualified SWPPP Developer (QSD) and Qualified SWPPP Practitioner (QSP) prepared all documentation and inspection for this project and successfully transitioned inspection services over to Gill’s Onions.

Santa Paula Railroad Station

Award Winner:  Santa Paula California Chamber of Commerce Civic Beautification of the Year

Project Description

Santa Paula is a unique small community in that it has an airport and its own railroad line.  The railroad station was built in the 1930’s and is a historic landmark.  The site was generally undeveloped, except for some warehouses and packing plants nearby.  Its location near the heart of town made this site a candidate for restoration.  This project required designing the station platform in accordance with railroad standards.  The project included a gazebo and park.  The architect selected brick for the accent pavement areas, which included sidewalks adjacent to the street.  A key element of the design of this project was design of ADA compliance and addressing the grade difference across the site.  We developed a unique mountable curb to provide access to the original loading ramp and accommodate the sidewalk requirements.

Scope of Services

  • Combined commercial / residential site
  • Streets and buildings constructed in 1930’s
  • Site conforms to Railroad Design Standards
  • Curb, gutter and sidewalk
  • Conform to existing building doors
  • Conform to existing driveways
  • Access Ramps / ADA Compliance
  • Landscaping & Irrigation
  • Street lighting 
  • Park with Gazebo Structure
  • Drainage system
  • Coordination with businesses / residences
  • Hardscape and street amenities
