Abstract/Artist Statement

Gage Engineering under the leadership of project manager Ellen Tiedemann aims to redesign UOP’s Robb Garden to increase its sustainability and access. The current drought in California has created many restrictions for water use. This has rendered Robb Garden insufficient towards it original purpose of being an example of sustainability. Gage Engineering plans to add a stormwater collection system and filter to combine with the current irrigation system. UOP’s south campus has a long history of traffic safety issues, as well as mobility issues for the disabled. This factor has greatly impacted the success of Rob Garden and it’s surrounding institutions The road entrance and South Campus parking will be redesigned to fix these accessibility issues. Not only will this make the area much safer, but it will increase the noticeability of Robb Garden and community attractiveness. Robb Garden was originally designed to serve as a learning and agricultural resource center for students and community members at UOP, however, it has not been able to reach this potential due to the previously stated problems. Gage Engineering will supplement the renovation by adding a reinforced concrete structure where students can learn study research and propel Robb Garden to its full capacity.
