Lakewood Retail Center
Client: DKY Architects
The project site is located adjacent to Carson Street, a major arterial in the City. The site was mostly
undeveloped except for one existing building served by a septic system. The project involved
construction of a five unit commercial center and a surface parking lot.
Working directly for the architect, Civil Works Engineers was responsible for the coordination and
preparation of field survey/base mapping, site layout, site grading and drainage, and utility service
connections (water, sewer, gas). Coordination and processing through the Los Angeles County Flood
Control was required to allow connection of the site drainage system to an existing County catch
basin. Permanent BMPs utilizing infiltration were incorporated into the site drainage design to treat
the runoff and reduce the flow from the site. Assistance during construction was also provided.
