O’Dell Engineering, a Westwood company is providing land surveying and landscape architecture services to support upgrades to the existing pool, pool deck, and adjacent lawn areas at the Ladera Recreation Center. The scope of work includes topographic survey and mapping, conceptual designs, construction documents, and bidding services. Conceptual renderings were also completed to assist the client with fundraising efforts. In addition to mitigating existing slope and drainage issues, the improved recreation center landscape will provide new open social spaces for gatherings. The pool and deck areas will be expanded and upgraded to the current code. New planting additions include a mix of specimen trees and low water-use plantings, with the overall palette designed to meet MWELO water standards.
