The Westgate project included the 223-acre Phoenix Coyotes arena site at the intersection of Loop 101 and Glendale Avenue. The project consists of six million square-feet of mixed-use development, including retail, office, hotel, and residential use, and a 17,500 seat multi-purpose arena. WOODPATEL designed three miles of public roadways, coordinated the relocation of irrigation facilities, including right-of-way and easement exchanges, and designed two miles of off-site storm drain facilities conveying off-site storm water for the project. Our extensive knowledge of the project allowed WOODPATEL to efficiently design the drainage facilities and coordinate the location of storm drain and irrigation facilities to minimize conflicts between the two, allowing less expensive storm drain pipe materials to be used. The cost-effective design reduced the linear footage of storm drain pipe required for the project, saving approximately $300,000 in construction costs.
WOODPATEL was able to meet a fast-track schedule, allowing the contractor to phase construction of off-site storm drain facilities and roadway improvements. The project included:
- Design of three miles of public roadways
- Relocation of irrigation facilities, including right-of-way and easement exchanges
- Design of two miles of off-site storm drain facilities handling off-site storm water for this 223-acre Phoenix Coyotes arena site
- Locating of storm drain and irrigation facilities to minimize conflicts, allowing less expensive storm drain pipe materials to be used
- Coordination with the on-site consultant, providing a level of quality control on each other’s work to minimize design error and potential construction problems
- Design of reduction of the linear footage of storm drain pipe saving the City approximately $300,000 in construction costs
- Fast-track schedule allowing contractor to phase construction of off-site storm drain facilities and roadway improvements.
- Mixed-use development
- Considerable cost savings to Client
