Project Challenge and Solution
To meet the Escondido Fire Department’s requirements, a dry standpipe was designed and located internally to the project for fire use.
Two water quality hydromodification detention basins were required, one on either side of the secondary access road. Space constraints prevented one large basin; therefore, two smaller basins with matching elevations were tied together using a storm drain pipe.
One-foot foundation steps were implemented into the building foundations to meet the fall of the adjacent driveways.
