m6 Consulting was selected to prepare plans for a complete remodel of the facilities’ golf course, which entailed the design of 130,000 CY of grading and associated drainage facilities. Capacity limitations in the City of Los Angeles downstream drainage facilities required the modeling of course hydrology and hydraulics to detain flow in excess of system capacity in a series of landscape depressions in the golf course, and detail required volumetric storage accordingly. m6 provided methane mitigation plans for the design of the course and course facilities, due to the presence of near-surface petroleum and methane deposits in this portion of the City. m6 provided utility design for an updated water supply system for the course, as well as a new sewer system for the course buildings to replace the aged septic systems. Electrical and communications distribution plans were provided for infrastructure upgrades which were completed in conjunction with course construction. Additionally, m6 completed the structural design for the new training center and comfort station buildings to serve the facility. These buildings featured extensive glazing to maximize the views of the course and City skyline and required the design of steel moment frames to accommodate the building openings while mitigating seismic design forces. m6 staff provided design, structural calculations, City of Los Angeles permitting and approval, and construction period observations.
