Siegfried was retained by the City of Palo Alto to prepare the 75% design level construction documents for the design-build emergency water wells project which consisted of installing a new 1,000 GPM 850 foot-deep water well in the Eleanor Pardee Park site. Siegfried was tasked with surveying the site, managing the test hole drilling and hydrogeological report preparation, permitting, public outreach efforts, and preparing the civil engineering and landscape architecture construction documents for the well and Eleanor Pardee Park. Siegfried’s civil designs allowed for an innovative solution which de-coupled the well head from other portions of the delivery system, allowing seamless integration into the surrounding park and gardens. Landscape design elements included the development of several conceptual designs for the expansion of a community drought tolerant display garden to incorporate subsurface and above ground well components. The design expanded the park and created educational gathering areas, a subsurface vault cover which doubled as an informational kiosk, access solutions, and pedestrian walkways.
