San Jose Evergreen Community College District – San Jose City College

Carroll Engineering has been involved with various projects for San Jose City College which included a new parking lot design at the southwest side of the campus (including striping plan), the Laswell Avenue Parking Lot adjacent to the Cosmetology/ Reprographics Building (including striping plan), and SJCC Cosmetology/Reprographics Conversion project.

Carroll Engineering also provided topographic surveys, civil engineering design and construction administration for the new Multi-use and Arts Buildings and surrounding walkways and landscape surfaces.

All of the projects required the preparation of site plans and final construction documents consisting of Grading & Drainage Plans, Underground Utilities Plans (for storm and sanitary sewers), Horizontal Control Plans, Erosion Control Plans, Demolition Plans, and Notes & Details for construction. C3 BMP measures were included in the design with bio-swales where needed. New on-site storm and sanitary systems were connected to existing systems on-site for the Cosmetology/Reprographics Conversion project. Division 2 specifications were prepared.

Campbell Union High School District – Performing Arts Centers

Carroll Engineering participated with the design team for the construction of Performing Arts Centers (PAC) at five high schools in the Campbell Union High School District: Branham High School, Leigh High School, Del Mar High School, Prospect High School and Westmont High School. The projects began in 2008 and were completed in late 2010. Topographic surveys were completed at each school site and utilized for the design of the PAC’s. Each project consisted of the addition of the building, adjacent pavement and landscaping, walkways and realignment of frontage road in some instances. Civil plans consisted of Demolition Plans, Grading Plans, Underground Utilities Plans, Horizontal Control Plans, and Notes & Details. Erosion Control Plans were also included. Plans for each site showed drainage courses and new storm drains to existing storm drains on-site. Sanitary sewers and domestic water were designed based on existing systems on each site. Rerouting of fire lines was included.

Christopher High School

Carroll Engineering was part of the design team involved in the design and construction of a new high school in the Gilroy Unified School District. The project began in 2006 and was completed and opened in September 2010. The campus was constructed on a 50-acre site in the City of Gilroy. Carroll Engineering provided topographic and boundary surveys which were used to prepare a Preliminary Master Grading Plan and Utility Plan of the entire project for use in preparing final detailed construction documents. Storm Water detention basins were located and shown in the Master Grading Plan phase. On-site plans were prepared which consisted of Grading Plans, Underground Utilities Plan (storm, sanitary sewer and domestic water), and horizontal dimension plans.

Off-Site Design included preparation of plans in the City of Gilroy format for storm sewer, sanitary sewer and water mains and lateral connections and complete frontage improvements for Santa Teresa Boulevard, Christopher Court, Day Road and a sanitary sewer along Lyons Creek. Carroll Engineering processed the same through the City for approval. Erosion Control plans and Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) and Notice of Intent were prepared for the District’s and contractor’s use. Carroll Engineering also coordinated with the Santa Clara Valley Water District to obtain approvals for outfalls to Lyons Creek.
