KTUA prepared a General Development Plan for the expansion and upgrade of this existing 10 acre neighborhood park for the City of San Diego. Services included preparing a public survey, public workshops, two concept alternatives, preparation of a General Development Plan, cost estimate, as well as processing through the City of San Diego and appropriate design review committees.
KTUA’s responsibilities also included the preparation of construction documents for the park improvements per the approved General Development Plan. Improvements included the addition of shade structures, picnic tables, benches, shade trees, a new children’s play area, perimeter fence expansion and replacement of drinking fountains. In addition, the City expanded KTUA’s scope of work to include construction documents for two rain gardens at the east and west ends of the park site. KTUA worked closely with the civil engineer and the City’s Stormwater Department coordinating the rain garden designs and locations, preparing planting plans with two different plant palettes and irrigation plans specific to this new type of stormwater management system, as well as designing an interpretative sign for these gardens. Once the rain garden plans were complete, KTUA and the civil engineer presented the rain garden philosophy to the community as an informational tool.
The scope of work also included cost estimating, bid support and construction administration services. The plans were prepared in accordance with City of San Diego standards and requirements.
