Manzanita Park

This 39-acre public park serves the surrounding neighborhood while providing lighted soccer fields to meet the community’s recreational needs. The park also provides regional stormwater retention and local channelization. A 98-space parking lot was also built utilizing pervious concrete and asphalt. Hunter Contracting Co. (Hunter) provided constructability reviews, cost estimating models at each design phase, GMP, VE, and alternative systems analysis.  Hunter proposed a cast-in-place concrete arch structure (Con-ArchTM) to be incorporated in the design to provide pedestrian access over a local drainage channel instead of a box culvert—adding aesthetic value to the project while saving the City approximately $20,000. Used a modular restroom building (an alternative solution recommended by the Hunter team instead of a traditional building) that took five weeks off the schedule.
