Holbrook Farms Park

Holbrook Farms Community Park was developed in a collaborative effort with Ivory Development, Playground Consultants, and Lehi City, with the understanding that it will ultimately be dedicated to Lehi City. Several objectives helped drive the design, including the desire to provide a recreational landmark for the community, incorporating trails and recreational connectivity, and the use of non-traditional park landscaping, including native & meadow grass rather than exclusively turf sod. The design of the 33-acre park incorporates a single-direction, looping road to bring park visitors “into” the park and create a more immersive park experience, as well as intentional grading to create vertical interest and recreational opportunities, such as sledding and off-road cycling. FOCUS designed the irrigation plan with water efficiency and intentional storm-water management being of utmost importance.

Arrival

As FOCUS engineers developed the storm drain and flood control master plan for the community, they recognized the soils would prove challenging for locating septic tanks. FOCUS worked with Eagle Mountain City to address drainage requirements while configuring the best project layout to meet ordinances. By collaborating closely with the geotechnical engineer to identify site-specific conditions, lot layouts were adjusted to meet local and State Health code requirements.

Ivory Ridge

This master-planned community encompasses 366 acres and features a diverse selection of residential product types. Located on the east side of Lehi, Ivory Ridge offers easy access to the freeway and stunning mountain views.

Madison Parkway Office Building

The office building is located on a busy corner of State Route 151 that was undergoing a significant amount of improvement. Focus Engineering & Surveying carried out site civil and structural engineering services in conjunction with the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) road widening and asphalt project.

Seasons Estates & Townhomes

Homes located on the hillside required extensive retaining wall systems, gravity walls, and keystone block walls. Storm drain management required stormwater detention.

Discovery Ridge

Located just 15 minutes from Park City’s Main Street and downtown Salt Lake City, Discovery Ridge is a beautiful 72-acre mountain residential development. This integrated community of affordable and market-rate housing includes 54 townhomes and 43 single-family homes, all with two-car garages. Thirty of these units are classified as deed-restricted housing for those working in the area’s essential services.
