RICK provided engineering, landscaping and surveying services for this design-build parking structure project in the County of Los Angeles for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). The project consisted of preparing site plans and specifications to support a proposed 4-level parking structure. The parking structure is being constructed to serve commuters using the new Metro Gold Line Eastside Extension trolley.
The project required extensive coordination with the Client/Contractor, MTA, the project architect and County staff. A unique challenge was presented when designing the project to meet the storm drain and water quality requirements while staying within the capacity of the aging infrastructure and site constraints. The challenge was successfully met with innovative yet cost effective solutions.
