Santa Clara Square – Commercial Campus

Santa Clara Square is a unique combination of retail, commercial and apartment facilities. The commercial campus includes eleven buildings and three parking structures located within 40 acres of carefully planned, amenity oriented landscape including an existing urban forest of preserved historic Redwood trees. The site utilizes tertiary treated recycled water for landscape; however higher concentrations of salts and chlorides commonly found in recycled water are intolerable for Redwoods. Due to strict drought regulations, potable water was not permitted for this specialized use for irrigating the preserved urban forest. Design solutions were provided to construct a customized system to proportionally blend both potable and recycled water sources at a calculated ratio to irrigate the trees within safe sodium and chloride concentrations, but also stay within water allocations.

The Historic Estate at Sunnylands

Irrigation design solutions were provided to improve tree health by designing an irrigation system to span the canopies of the tree lines and separating their irrigation from the surrounding golf course. This allowed properly managed irrigation during summer months when the course is inactive. The trees on the 200 acre site were evaluated and irrigation construction documents were provided in tandem with the golf course renovation. The system was designed to connect to the golf system utilizing HDPE lateral piping at the outer spans of the canopies using a vibratory plow to minimize damage to root systems. Other design work included irrigation design for the historic residence, guest suites, perimeter streetscapes, and the administration and maintenance facility. Design efforts received the American Society of Irrigation Consultants Merit Award, 2017. Learn More

Saddleback Unified School District

The project involved renovation of the sports and play fields for all 34 schools to improve playability, reduce water use, and improving maintainability. The existing fields were evaluated for playability, soil health, and condition of the existing irrigation infrastructure. Where available, coordination with three separate water agencies allowed many of the systems to be upgraded to utilize recycled water. The District’s irrigation standards were studied for opportunities to improve equipment performance and installation procedures. The introduction of a centralized, weather based irrigation control system with flow monitoring was established to improve the functionality and efficiency of their irrigation. Construction documents were prepared for each school to facilitate the public bid process. Construction administration services included pre-bid, observation, and contractor pay application reviews Learn More
