SCS to design, plan, engineer and oversee construction for new office building, parking, and landscaping

PLEASANTON, CA – SCS Engineers was chosen to help SMPO ELS (Memphis, TN) develop the westerly area of a 7.5-acre site in South San Francisco, California. The initial development plan includes a 20,000 square foot office building with associated parking and landscaping.

SCS Engineers will provide the engineering, planning, permitting, design, construction oversight and closeout services required to meet environmental regulatory requirements including working directly with regulatory agencies; assessing and resolving any environmental issues; and designing and engineering soil gas and groundwater protection and monitoring systems.

SCS prepared a Site Closure and Post Closure/Construction Maintenance Plan that outlined remedial measures to allow development in light of recognized environmental conditions. The plans were prepared in accordance with the local land use and regulatory requirements and were approved by oversight agencies.

“Our team of professionals will identify and ensure compliance with any landfill-related regulations,” said Joe Miller, SCS vice president, and project director. “We will also determine and resolve any environmental issues that could affect the construction, operation, and maintenance of the new building, roadways, utilities, and infrastructure for the site.”

A portion of the site contains fill soils mixed with residual burn ash material. The burn ash is overlain by clean soils. The property is also directly east of a closed municipal solid waste landfill owned by others.
