Title

Designing A Better Place To Live: The Redbridge Community

Format

SOECS Senior Project Demonstration

Abstract/Artist Statement

The Redbridge Community project consists of two major tasks: design of a parking lot and a recreation structure for a newly developed community within the City of Tracy, CA. The access to and parking for an existing community store and post office is necessary to reduce traffic congestion and improve public safety. A traffic study was performed to attain specific data required for design. The parking lot was designed for maximum occupancy and one-direction traffic flow. Potential stormwater runoff and associated hydraulic flows were calculated and proper drainage facilities were incorporated into the design. The second portion of the project involves the structural design of a fitness center for the community. The fitness center will be approximately 1500 square feet in size and will be located on an adjacent lot to the community store. The fitness center was designed according to the Uniform Building Code, California Building Code, and City of Tracy Standards. The structure was analyzed for seismic and wind loads including applicable dead and live loads. The aesthetics and materials used for the structure match similar existing buildings within the community.
