Santa Maria Golf & Country Club is a high-end, 700-acre mixed-use development located along the Corredur Sur. It includes retail and restaurant space, residences, and a Jack Nicklaus golf course. Langan provided complete site/civil and traffic design for the on-site roads, drainage, and utility infrastructure from the conceptual phase through construction documents. One of the greatest site-specific challenges was the design of over 30 acres of on-site, man-made lakes to act as stormwater management and high-quality site amenities, which will be constructed in fill materials. Langan’s geotechnical engineers evaluated and recommended innovative ground improvement measures to counter the over one meter of settlement anticipated to occur from the 4-5 meters of imported design fill on top of the existing compressible clay.
