LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE PROJECTS

 

 

Featured Projects:

 

Weber State University Landscape Master Plan:

Bingham Engineering prepared a campus-wide landscape master plan for Weber State University.The work encompassed a complete analysis of the existing campus and its landscape systems (including vegetation, pedestrian and vehicular traffic, site furniture and signage, building facades, aesthetic qualities, views, and other physical characteristics).The proposed master plan addressed methods of rejuvenating the campus and putting life and excitement back into its plazas and student gathering spaces, and improving the function of its walks, parking areas, and site amenities.A major focus was the use of water-wise plants, and upgrading the irrigation system to a state-of-the-art condition, including central control, ET scheduling, and flow sensing.

 

CUWCD Education Gardens:

Central Utah Water Conservancy District (CUWCD) developed a master plan for the installation of a demonstration and education garden to be constructed on their grounds surrounding the main business office in Orem, Utah.The purpose of this garden is to show the citizens of Utah that water conservation is not only possible, but that it can be accomplished in an aesthetic and attractive way.The Gardens are a logical extension of the Districtís other water conservation activities.

 

Bingham Engineering was retained to provide construction plans and documents necessary to bid and construct the Education Gardens.Work includes providing plans and construction details for layout and dimensioning, grading and drainage, utilities (electrical, sanitary sewer, culinary water, storm water drainage), planting, irrigation, along with specific details for installing various features and education demonstrations.Some of the amenities provided in the gardens include entry courtyard and overhead pergola, amphitheater, education pavilions, block retaining walls, raised planter beds, walks and paths, foot bridges, a dry streambed, fountain, rest room facilities, and numerous irrigation-related exhibits.Also included will be an extensive plant display area to showcase the appropriate selection and use of Utahís low-water plants.

 

Sugar House Park Irrigation System:

Sugar House Park is a 110-acre urban green space that may well be considered the most popular park along the entire Wasatch Front.Bingham Engineering evaluated its existing irrigation system and developed a complete, automatic irrigation system for the entire park using state-of-the-art equipment and high-efficiency design.Some of the challenges addressed in the project were significant elevation changes, various slope orientations, and a narrow watering window.Also included in the project were studies of alterative water sources, new playground siting, phased construction schedules and a full set of construction drawings and specifications.Phase 1 of the park was installed in 1999, and Phase 2 in 2001.Phase 3, which completed the renovation of the entire park irrigation system, was installed in the spring of 2004.
