SB Natural History Museum

Description of Project

The Museum was founded in 1916 by William Leon Dawson as the Museum of Comparative Oology. In 1923, the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History opened its doors at the current campus. The Museum celebrated its centennial year by undertaking a $21 million capital campaign to upgrade their aging facilities in ways that vastly improve our visitor experience.

Scope of Services

Flowers & Associates, Inc. provided civil engineering consultant services for Phase 1 of the project. Tasks included consulting with the Landscape Architects and other consultants in support of the design development effort and providing Preliminary Grading, Drainage, and Paving Plans sufficient for CEQA level review.

Peabody Stadium Renovation

SB High School Peabody Grandstand Replacement & Stadium Renovation

Project Information

The historic Santa Barbara High School Peabody Stadium was built in 1924. The Grandstand Replacement and Stadium Renovation Project intends to modernize the nearly 100-year-old stadium’s infrastructure and athletic field. The project scope includes:

  • Construct a new 2,300 seat concrete grandstand and press box that will bring the nearly 100-year-old facility into compliance with current State and regulatory building and accessibility codes.
  • Expand the athletic sports field to create a California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) regulation track and artificial turf field to support competitive athletic events and enhance the use of the facility by Santa Barbara High School and the community.
  • Replace two failing storm drain conduits to allow for continued pass through of municipal storm water systems and to mitigate ponding or flooding within the stadium and surrounding residential areas during storm events.

The Project is funded by the Foundation for Santa Barbara High School, Santa Barbara community bond measures, developer fees, and leverages State of California seismic mitigation funds.

Scope of Services

Flowers & Associates, Inc. provides supplemental construction review and monitoring, to assess compliance with contract documents and design intent for the extensive site improvements which are part of this substantially complex project.

We also provide QSP services for monitoring implementation of the Storm Water Pollution Plan over the construction period.  The Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) specifies that a Qualified SWPPP Practitioner (QSP) monitor the contractor’s site erosion control efforts and implementation throughout the construction period.

F&A is providing construction review and monitoring for the major storm drains and related structures of the large complex storm drainage system.

Dos Pueblos O’Leary Stadium

Project Description

The $2.1 million project consisted of a stadium renovation and improvements including a new synthetic turf and resurfacing of the running track.  The project was paid for by local athletic boosters and Measure I funds and was completed in 2019.

Scope of Services

F&A provided civil engineering design and construction phase services including replacement of the storm drainage system, storm water pollution prevention plan and grading services for the track and field.

Cabrillo Bath House/Pavilion

Project Description

First constructed in 1926, the building’s outdated interiors, structural deficiencies, failing mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as poor site accessibility, significantly limit its potential to serve Santa Barbara residents and visitors. As one of the City of Santa Barbara’s most significant public assets, its renovation ensures that it serves as a prime recreational facility well into the future.

The project includes:

  • Interior renovation of the Pavilion and Bathhouse
  • New heating, cooling, ventilation, plumbing and electrical systems
  • Renovation of the beachside promenade and the covered walkway (stoa) next to the playground
  • Landscaping around the building
  • Walkway along the western parking lot to connect Chase Palm Park to the promenade
  • Walkway onto the beach
  • Site lighting
  • New building ramps and walkway access via the parking lots and sidewalk

Scope of Services

Civil Engineering services provided by F&A included evaluating existing site pedestrian paths of travel for compliance with access code requirements and identify deficiencies, design of site improvements to address access deficiencies including a grading, drainage and paving plan, and design of site storm drain system improvements.

Pacific Palisades Village

Project Description

The 3.14-acre project located at 1045 Swarthmore Avenue in the Pacific Palisades, consisted of retail, restaurant, grocery, movie theater, yoga studio, banking, 3 floors of underground parking, open space and residential space.

Scope of Services

F&A’s principal engineer provided civil engineering services for this mixed-use project for phases including design & development, demolition, grading, site improvement and construction. Responsibilities included design development, utility plan, drainage plan, demolition plan, rough grading/excavation plan, haul route plan, temporary fencing plan, onsite and offsite improvements, technical support, construction observation and coordination with multiple agencies (Division of Sanitation for LID, County of LA Public Works, City of Los Angeles Public Works).

Rosewood Miramar Resort

Project Description

Spread over nearly 16 acres, and uniquely positioned on roughly 500 lineal feet of exclusive oceanfront, the Rosewood Miramar Hotel opened in 2019 offering 161 luxury rooms, cottages and bungalows to resort guests. UPRR railroad tracks bisect the property.

Scope of Services

F&A’s principal engineer provided project management during initial entitlement phase for the Rosewood Miramar Hotel and handled all aspects of preliminary and final design development and civil services, both on and offsite, to obtain Planning and Design Board approvals with the County of Santa Barbara. F&A permitting staff processed all agency clearances, developed FEMA Flood Operations & Maintenance Manuals and flood certifications, and successfully provided permitting services through the County of Santa Barbara. UPRR plans were developed and approved by UPRR.

Gill’s Onions Plant Expansion

Scope of Services

We provided civil engineering services, in conjunction with Hartigan Foley, the site Architect, for civil design and preparation of construction drawings and technical specifications for site grading, drainage, paving, public street and storm drainage improvements, and provided a hydrologic and hydraulic drainage report.

In addition, we also provided construction phase services including construction observation for this project. Since the area that was disturbed by construction was greater than one-acre, we prepared both a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan and N.O.I. required by the State Water Resources Control Board. Our in house Qualified SWPPP Developer (QSD) and Qualified SWPPP Practitioner (QSP) prepared all documentation and inspection for this project and successfully transitioned inspection services over to Gill’s Onions.
