AbstractSite development is a large portion of what Civil Engineers do in their chosen career field. This project yielded a site development plan for the Northeast corner of Oracle Road and Linda Vista Boulevard in Oro Valley, Arizona. More specifically, it was a 4.83 acre rectangular tract of land that was 1 section out of 4 that made up the larger parcel. The other 3 smaller parcels had their own respective groups design development plans for them that had to be compatible with ours. Communication between groups was essential for integrating drainage and transportation considerations. Combining the four Civil Engineering disciplines of geotechnical, hydraulic, structural, and transportation engineering, workable plans for a LEED certified two-story medical/dental office with an atrium and functional architectural floor layout were created. The project had to follow both city and county codes and was finalized with a presentation in front of a board of professional engineers that represented the different disciplines mentioned above.
