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.

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.

Casitas Plaza Shopping Center

Scope of Services

We provided civil site improvement planning, analysis and plan preparation for site improvements proposed by the Owners for improvements to the Casitas Plaza Shopping Center in order to accommodate the enlargement of the Albertson’s store. We also assisted the project Architects in devising an appropriate plan for the required ADA access provision improvements. After preliminary planning and design was complete, we were contracted to provide construction plan preparation, permit acquisition and construction phase services for the project.  Having prepared the concept plans for the entitlement phase, we established the basic design parameters for the grade design, drainage features and for parking area upgrades

In addition, we were also contracted to implement the following Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) provisions under separate contract:  visual observation; assurance that the project remained in full compliance with the CGP; directed implementation of all aspects of the project SWPPP including reasonable elimination of unauthorized site discharges; non-stormwater sampling and analysis; prepared and maintained record of weekly inspection reports and an annual compliance evaluation during construction; Notice of Termination; and other required project coordination within the State Storm Water Multiple Application and Report Tracking System (SMARTS) system.
