Mountain View Corridor Survey

In between Mountain View Corridor and subdivision developments to the east is an existing utility corridor that includes pipe, fiber optic, power and sewer lines, as well as storm drain pipes and a large detention pond facility. The utility companies had multiple easements, agreements, and fee titles to their property to facilitate the utilities. FOCUS utilized information available from the County Recorder, Surveyor’s Office, Utah Department of Transportation, and a current title report to locate visible evidence of the existing utilities. FOCUS plotted the recorded information and descriptions of all easements, agreements and deeds. This included showing the easements in relation to the actual utility locations with surveyors’ notes on the title report exceptions.

Jones Ranch Survey

FOCUS prepared a boundary, topography, and infrastructure survey for the 592-acre master planned development in West Jordan known as Jones Ranch. This is included topography using drone technology to capture aerial imagery for the entire site. As part of the Jones Ranch development the client is working with West Jordan City to provide a 4 MG water tank, pump station, and transmission lines. FOCUS provided the utility and infrastructure mapping, as well as the topography for the tank site, pumpstation site, and transmission line corridors.

Residents at South Point Drainage Plan

FOCUS designed a storm water collection system & detention pond for Residents at Southpoint—a 34-acre, multiphase, mixed-use development in Draper consisting of townhomes, apartments, and retail shops. In order to streamline development, avoid storm drain concerns, and maximizing available space for subsequent phases of the project, FOCUS recommended a single regional pond serving the entire development be built as part of phase one. The pond is a half acre in size and holds 77,000 cubic feet of water. Once all phases are complete, the 36” storm drain mainline will be approximately 4,200 feet in length, which is about three-quarters of a mile.

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.

Anderson Farms Park

The 10-acre park located in the Anderson Farms community in Lindon provides an amenity rich open space for nearby residents. City involvement throughout the design process ensured that Lindon City Parks Department was provided with a park to meet the city’s specific needs. With a large pavilion, playground, pickleball courts, basketball courts, play fields, picnic shelters, and a walking trail, the park provides recreation and fitness opportunities for a range of abilities and preferences. An existing constraint that, by necessity, influenced the design is an overhead power line with multiple poles. The power corridor couldn’t be ignored and ended up becoming a design opportunity which helped provide framework for the design. FOCUS also designed a comprehensive irrigation plan for the park.

Century Pinnacles Park

Century Pinnacles Park is a six-acre, public open space designed in conjunction with the Century Pinnacles subdivision in Eagle Mountain. The park boasts a core area of play elements and site furnishings organized in a compelling radial design. There are four secondary elements surrounding a large focal playground structure, including a pavilion, restroom, swingset, and zipline. Each element is intentionally placed in a way that compliments the radial pattern. These secondary elements are bordered by turf sod and formal shrub beds to create rhythm in the design and visual interest. As with many creative works, the initial park design was developed through a collaborative process using pens and trace paper and refinded over several months into the the final park design we have today. One challenge of this project was implementing the stormwater management system in a way that would be both functional and attractive. FOCUS also designed a comprehensive irrigation plan for the park.

Herriman Historic Park

FOCUS contracted with Herriman City to provide a design for a new city park that highlights the history of Herriman. Land development in Herriman continues at a rapid pace, and it was important to the city to set aside a property that could highlight aspects of its original history. The focal point of the park is a historic home from the late 1800’s, which is planned to be restored in conjunction with construction of the park. The FOCUS team worked closely with the city to provide conceptual designs and ideas consistent with the desires of the city and residents. Working within the constraints of topography, limited budget, historical elements, and public feedback, FOCUS was able to create a site layout and landscape design that is functional, historically sensitive, and meets the needs of the city and surrounding residents. FOCUS also designed a comprehensive irrigation plan for the park.

Holbrook Farms Drainage Plan

For the 900-acre master-planned community known as Holbrook Farms in Lehi City, FOCUS designed the storm drain system. This included two regional ponds for the entire development and trunkline system throughout all of the backbone roadways. The trunkline system included the design of 1.2 miles of a piped storm drain system, with 0.25 miles of 66” diameter pipe. The regional pond located just west of the Jordan River holds over 600,000 cubic feet of water, and required some wetlands mitigation and coordination with the state and county to discharge into the Jordan River.

Butterfield Creek

As part of the Hidden Oaks master planned development in Herriman City, FOCUS re-designed approximately 1.7 miles of Butterfield Creek to contain the 100 year flood plain with the creek. Due to farming operations and previous flooding, the creek was non-existent through the property, creating flooding potential and lack of control for historic flows. FOCUS designed a new open channel that would contain the 100 year flow throughout the site. The channel was designed with a low flow section for normal storm events and a high flow section for major events. The channel also included 4 culvert sections for future street crossings and 12 open-channel drop sections to manage channel velocity within the recommended range. FOCUS coordinated approval through the city, county, and state, and also assisted in gaining approval through FEMA.

Jones Ranch Drainage Plan

As part of Jones Ranch, a 592-acre master planned community located in West Jordan, FOCUS has been working hand in hand with West Jordan City public works and engineering to provide a conceptual drainage plan for the area. Jones Ranch is bisected east and west by approximately 1.8 miles of Barney’s Creek. FOCUS has worked with the city to provide a conceptual drainage design for the master planned development that includes some re-construction of Barney’s Creek, adding regional detention ponds, upgrading an existing regional pond to handle additional capacity, and coordination with state and county officials.
