Project Description

Client:Stantec Architecture/Turner Construction

Parcel Size: 50 Acres

Building Size: Approved for 353,935 SF

RSC Engineering partnered with the team of Turner Construction and Stantec Architecture on SMUD’s East Campus Operating Center design-build project to prepare a preliminary design that enabled Turner Construction to successfully bid the project. During the project design phase, RSC developed the civil construction documents and worked in collaboration with other members of the design team and Turner Construction and its sub-contractors to ensure that the sitework remained within the original bid budget.

The civil engineering design included many challenges, such as: design of a floodwall along the perimeter of the project, a storm drain detention pond, a storm drain lift station, a sewer lift station, an underground rainwater harvesting system and natural storm water quality treatment features like grassy swales.
