Site design services were provided by raSmith’s Irvine office for a 500,000-square-foot Discount Tire distribution center on 27 acres in Perris, Calif. This project included grading approximately 16 acres that were dedicated to on-site detention basins, parking facilities, landscape, truck loading/unloading and truck staging areas. The remaining 11 acres were developed for Discount Tire’s Distribution Center building pad, including 121 truck dock bays. Two public streets, America’s Tire Drive and Markham Street, were developed for the facility. Modifications were also made to Harvill Avenue, which is the public road that fronts the distribution center.
Multi-disciplinary services provided by raSmith included, but were not limited to, site investigation reports; site planning; zoning; due diligence; civil engineering consisting of grading, site utilities (storm drain, domestic water, sanitary sewer, fire water main lines, and dry utility facilities) and erosion control; water quality management plans; storm water pollution prevention plans; off-site public street improvements; landscape architecture; municipal approvals/permitting; ALTA Survey; office mapping (including easements/quit claims); structural retaining walls; and traffic studies/reports.
