Abstract/Artist Statement

The new park located in north Stockton, CA will serve the surrounding community and more specifically the large apartment complex which is located next to the park. The park will include a play area, picnic area, two basketball court, baseball/softball field, four tennis courts, bike path and parking area The engineering portion for the park will include finish grading, designing the drainage and a retention pond, tying into the existing sanitary sewer, storm drain, and water lines, and the design of the electrical for all of the lights on site. Finally, a parking lot to meet the needs of the sports facilities as well as one to meet the needs of the community center will be required. The community center will consist of three main areas and two sets of men's and women's restrooms. The three main areas are the gym, a grand ballroom, and the smallest area will in include offices. The community center will be a structural steel building with open web steel joist's (OWSJ) at the roof. Included in our report will be an economic analysis of two lateral force resisting system's (LFRS). The two LFRS compared will be steel braced-frame and concrete shear wall. In order to commence our design we first gathered information from various sources. We had two mentors, Ben Neely, P.E. and Dr. Hector Estrada, who helped us with the park and the community center, respectively. Also, Victor Machado from the Parks and Recreation helped us to obtain information specific to park design.
