3877 El Camino

Plans for 3877 El Camino are to develop a mixed-use podium-style building with 11,000 SF of retail space, 17 residential units, and an underground garage. As the site/civil engineer, Langan provided site layout, grading, and utility and stormwater management design services. Working with the City of Palo Alto's utility and stormwater departments, we coordinated off-site infrastructure upgrades and designs to meet project demands. Part of our scope includes addressing the City of Palo Alto's comments on stormwater hydraulics and hydrology and stormwater treatment. We are implementing an integrated approach — with input from the entire design team — to divert storm waters into biofiltration planters instead of directly into storm drain systems, which was part of the initial design.
