As a main sub-consultant, J2 served as the Landscape Architecture design manager for both the aesthetic design team and for the habitat restoration team on this 580-acre project within the City of Phoenix. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was the client, and the City of Phoenix was the local sponsor for this project. Included in J2’s scope were professional services for the habitat and recreational facility master planning and design, multi-use recreational trail system design for both hard and soft-surface trails, habitat unit calculations, habitat restoration planting designs, staging area designs for 7th Avenue, 7th Street, and 16th Street (including parking and trail nodes). Additionally, J2 provided cost estimating, specification development, facilitation at working group meetings, coordination with the City of Phoenix and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and construction document development for this exciting, five mile project within the Salt River corridor.
