A transit oriented district situated in the heart of Silicon Valley, the San Jose Transit Village project includes approximately 50 acres of land with proposed development of approximately 10 million square feet of retail and commercial space along with residential units. The project includes office towers, a residential tower, and sizeable retail spaces that include shops and restaurants.
ENGEO performed geotechnical and environmental services within the limits of the San Jose Transit Village project to support early design and permitting processes.
The massive amount of data collected for this project were presented in a Geographical Information System (GIS) portal developed by ENGEO. The GIS portal allows stakeholders and the project team to review and access site data in one location. The GIS portal also allows overlaying of different site data to help the team draw conclusions and make preliminary development plans.
Our LEED and hydrology staff provided valuable input on this project to achieve a high level of sustainability during design. Our ground source heat pump specialists provide consultation on energy saving systems and worked closely with the project architect and MEP to develop a feasible plan to utilize geothermal systems on the project.
