Project Description:

South Orange County Community College District intends to add a performing arts/theater center at the Irvine Valley College. The project involves the construction of a new two-story building with a basement at its existing community college campus. The new building will be situated next to future campus buildings such as the new Business Administration Building. Installation of new utility service lines for potable water, fire water and sanitary sewer drainage was designed to service the new building as well as the future buildings. A 200 stall surface parking lot addition to the existing parking lot was required for the new theater as well as for the future buildings.

VCA’s Role:

VCA Engineers, Inc. performed engineering design services for the above facility which included preparation of construction documents depicting: Site Removal Plan, Site Horizontal and Vertical Control, Site Paving, Grading and Drainage with local Storm Water Management Design (SUSMP), limited hydrology and hydraulics study, cut and fill, Erosion Control Plans, Site Sections and Miscellaneous Sections and Details, including details of critical conditions and connections. Additionally VCA designed the wet service utilities such as the fire water, potable water, storm drain, and sanitary sewer. VCA also set the building’s finish floor elevation to blend with the new and existing adjacent existing grades considering ADA path of travel and drainage.
