The City of Rancho Cordova is home to the Capital Village Town Center, which features Lowe’s Home Improvement Store, Chili’s Restaurant, US Bank, two minor anchor pads, and 9 other shop/pad buildings. RSC designed the parking lot and other infrastructure facilities for the retail center, including pedestrian and vehicular access between the new center and the existing roadways.
Copperstone Village I Family Apartments is a 120-unit affordable housing apartment complex in the gated community of College Square Marketplace in Sacramento. RSC designed the site infrastructure including the parking lot and all interior portions of the complex, and sized and located the onsite infrastructure design to ensure that future phases are adequately served by the extension of the public and private facilities.
Douglas Office Park in Roseville consists of two multi-tenant office buildings totaling 194,000 square feet. The elevation change from the street to the rear property posed some interesting challenges during the design phase. To address these differences a significant retaining wall was incorporated into the design. The wall design was also used to address the challenge of an ADA compliant walk from street level to the proposed buildings.
The second phase of Folsom Gateway Shopping Center consists of seven buildings and is anchored by Bed, Bath and Beyond and PetSmart. The expansion project had to tie into the existing mall and had to fit between an existing office building, Iron Point Rd, Hwy 50 and a wetlands area. To add to the challenge, the parcel had a great deal of vertical relief. Preparing for the expansion of this retail center called for comprehensive site planning and civil engineering services for RSC's client, The Evergreen Company.
RSC was called upon to provide civil engineering services for the new addition to Foresthill High School. The addition is built on existing school property to the east of the main school facility, and had to meet standards provided by the school district. The school’s amphitheater outside the main theater building had an outdoor stage with a high entry and an exit door near the bottom of the building. The vertical relief of the school’s site made grading tricky and good drainage essential to avoid flooding the building.
Green Valley Marketplace in scenic El Dorado Hills consists of six buildings, including a Safeway with a gas station, and showcases a beautiful waterfall. Before construction of the project could begin, demolition of three vacant buildings, an attendant parking lot and a cul-de-sac was required. Both on-site and off-site civil plans were prepared, which included the widening of Green Valley Rd and Francisco Dr and the design and installation of two new traffic signals to allow access to the fire department.
Covering nearly 30 acres, the ambitious Howe 'Bout Arden development is one of the largest retail nodes in the Sacramento metropolitan area. Located in the Arden-Arcade area, the site originally consisted of four properties, each with their own flavor. The Arden-Howe-Ethan area is being transformed into an improved shopping and entertainment center that includes upscale stores and the new Century Arden 14 and XD Theatre.
Kimball High School sits on a 62-acre site located on Lammers Road south of West Eleventh Street in Tracy. Civil engineering services necessary for schools can be complicated, and this was no exception. Offsite improvements included providing a safe passage for students to and from the school site and the 11th Street intersection. Onsite work included the grading necessary to make the site ADA compliant.
The Lowe’s complex in Lincoln consists of nine buildings including Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse, a fast food restaurant with drive thru, other retail shops and a potential gas station. The project is adjacent to Hwy 65, Ingram Slough (a conservation area), residential homes and Lincoln Hills Golf Course. RSC coordinated with Caltrans for modifications to Hwy 65, including preliminary plans for the widening of the bridge, and assisted with the preliminary alignment study for an NEV bridge crossing.
Lowe’s Martell store is located within the Martell Business Park Master Plan area and built on just 11.2 acres. This small lot size coupled with hilly terrain posed a challenge for such a large retail center. Organic materials throughout the site needed to be cleared before grading and site preparation could begin. The project was fast tracked and took just over a year to complete. Preparing for this retail center called for comprehensive site planning and civil engineering services.
Morgan Hill Retail Center features Target,Chili's, a cinema, 11 minor majors and 19 shops. The parking lot and infrastructure facilities were redesigned, including pedestrian and vehicular access to existing roadways. RSC worked with Caltrans to obtain an Encroachment Permit for Hwy 101 ramp modifications, traffic signal modifications, widening of Cochrane Rd and re-striping of the overpass. Preparation of the offsite plans for the new Mission View Dr, relocation of a sanitary sewer line and modification of Santa Clara Valley Water District’s water line were also provided.
The Natomas Park development in Sacramento includes a CVS store, Fitness 19 gym and two other shop buildings. RSC designed the parking lot, underground utilities and other infrastructure facilities for the retail center including pedestrian and vehicular access between the new center and existing roadways. RSC worked closely with the City of Sacramento to prepare offsite plans for sewer, water and driveway locations, and worked with the Reclamation District to prepare an access easement to the drainage canal.
A little over 39 acres in size, Rocklin Commons Shopping Center, the project includes Target as an anchor tenant with 4 major anchor pads and 15 other shop/pad buildings. RSC Engineering supplied the entire parking lot and infrastructure design, including pedestrian and vehicular links to the existing roadways, two miles of offsite water main, and offsite intersection improvements/upgrades in the City of Rocklin and the Town of Loomis. As part of the Rocklin Commons project, RSC also prepared construction documents for a storm water detention basin.
Rocklin Crossings sits on close to 50 acres of land and incorporates many unique design features. The project features a Walmart, plus 5 major anchor pads and 13 other pads. RSC supplied the parking lot and infrastructure design, including pedestrian and vehicular links to the existing roadways, an offsite sewer lift station, two miles of offsite water main, and offsite intersection improvements, as well as prepared construction documents for a storm water detention basin, relocation of existing canal pipeline, and relocation of irrigation services.
Skywest Commons in the City of Hayward consists of a Target, junior anchor and three other shop buildings. RSC designed a new parking lot and other infrastructure facilities for the shopping center around an existing Carrow’s Restaurant, including pedestrian and vehicular access. RSC worked closely with the City of Hayward to prepare plans for the realignment of the City’s Street A to provide fully integrated access from the new public street to the shopping center.
The SMUD campus provides a centralized location for offices, workshops, and storage, plus parking for employees and service vehicles. Located on a 50-acre site at the southeast corner of Bradshaw Road and Kiefer Boulevard in Sacramento, the project consists of a five-story office building as well as fleet maintenance, shop/tool, warehouse/salvage, electrical shop, and car wash buildings. Additionally, a large of portion of the site contains outdoor storage areas.
Rick, I have enjoyed working with you and observing (and benefiting from) the way you conduct your business. You are a rare jewel amongst civil engineers (and amongst design professional in general).
