Hidden Oaks is a master planned community adjacent to Butterfield Canyon comprised of 823 homes. FOCUS was involved with the master planning, which included the realignment of Butterfield Creek, and has done design work on all phases of the project. The site includes a small valley with steep slopes on both ends of the valley where it connects with other parts of the development. This topography posed design challenges with storm drain and earthworks. FOCUS engineers teamed up with outside water resource engineers to model the creek realignment, which enabled them to provide a storm drain design that didn’t require extensive earthworks costs.
