Prepared master plan and construction documents for the final phase of Towncenter Community Park. Improvements included: a three-field softball complex; synthetic turf outfields; a restaurant/office building; six-stall batting cage; and two arena soccer fields with synthetic turf surfacing and parking for 300 cars. The southern portion of the project has a soccer/football community park, three soccer fields, one football/soccer field in synthetic turf, an amphitheater, two tot lots, and four hexagonal shade pavilions. Project consisted of approx 360,000 sf of synthetic turf. MIG was a subconsultant to Psomas and provided layout, planting and irrigation design services, and construction support services.
The project also included pedestrian bridges across the San Diego River, river trails, and extensive native vegetation.
Special Problems or Difficulties and Resolutions
There was a fair amount of value engineering, negotiations with the adjacent school district facility, and adjustments to the scope of improvements as we proceeded through the development of construction documents. It required some proactive dialog to flesh out the larger issues and subsequent successful collaborative solutions.
Firm’s effort to control costs: included cost estimate updates at major design milestones and value engineering with client and consultants throughout design process
Project Schedule/Time Control Issues
The project was successfully completed on time with no scheduling issues.
Client was satisfied with MIG’s performance as a subconsultant.
