Sandis provided civil engineering and surveying services for the development of Stanford University’s 2,400 beds of graduate student and family housing, Escondido Village. The 30 acre site encompasses four 6 to 10 story buildings that provide housing for graduate students and their families. The project also involved the creation of 750 parking spaces, in two underground levels. During this final phases of the project, Sandis provided construction administration and record documents as well as QSD services.
For this project, the QSD scope included design and engineering consulting services to assist in the development of an SWPPP and obtaining a permit under the NPDES Construction General Permit, as well as the development of a Water Pollution Control District (WPCD). Sandis also assisted the university with preparing project registration documents for uploading to SMARTs.
The Escondido Village Graduate Residences surveying services included the preparation of a topographic survey and underground utility locating.
Engineering services included the preparation of a horizontal control plan; on-site grading and drainage; water, storm, and sanitary sewer plans, the demolition of existing underground utilities, and surface improvements; analysis of the capacities of the existing utility (storm, sanitary and water) systems.
Sandis worked closely with stakeholders to ensure smooth pathways to future additions, and the campus utilities were not disrupted throughout the entirety of the project.
