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.

Santa Barbara Railroad Station

Award Winner: California Preservation Foundation Design Award
Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Historic Preservation

Project Description

This project was a historic renovation of the railroad station and upgrade of the site to current ADA standards. The project included station landings, walkways, lighting, parking lots, park, and landscaping all integrated to provide the user with a feel of the original train station.

The site is located in the lower portion of town, the site is flat and subject to flooding. It was historic but needed to be brought up to current ADA standards, around the site, the station house, and the adjacent buildings. Strict Railroad guidelines had to be met on the loading platform and the large expanse of concrete needed to be designed with positive drainage for this critical passenger area.

All the drainage in the area ultimately goes to Mission Creek which crosses the site and runs adjacent to the site. During flood stage it is not uncommon for water to overflow the banks and inundate the site. The banks in fact are higher than a significant portion of the site. To protect the site form higher creek flows that are not over-topping the drainage system goes to a manhole and the storm drain is fitted with a check valve to prevent water from backing into the site. The system has been tested and functioned well in significant recent storms.

Being a transportation hub, the site has to accommodate pedestrians, vehicles and buses. As many as five buses can be staged at the station.
