Crystal Cove Infrastructure Phase III

The Crystal Cove Infrastructure Project involves the preservation and restoration of the Historic Crystal Cove Cottages.

Project highlights

  • Grading, drainage and retaining walls included cantilever walls and a 20 ft. high timber lagging debris wall.
  • Sewer system includes 6 precast vaults for the future lift stations, manholes, and 2 pre-fab tanks.
  • Road improvements and caissons includes construction of new infrastructure, caisson piles, and a concrete grade beam.
Challenge

Tight spaces, difficult angles and maneuvering in the unpredictable environment and everchanging terrain caused by working on the beach shoreline of a cliffside while preserving 100 year old cabins.

Solution

The RockForce team worked closely with the California State Parks Department, Crystal Cove Historical District and the Coastal Commission, and warranted all requirements would be met and exceeded. Utilizing a pull planning lean technique, RockForce ensured there was maximum production with minimal impact to the surroundings and overlapping of usable space for staging and operating.

Outcome

RockForce preserved the aged landscape by keeping any clearing to an absolute minimum. Original walls behind each cottage were carefully documented, disassembled, and stored for replacement in front of the new walls to maintain the historical appearance. The same plan was followed for all of the original walkways, gates, fences, and decorative objects to restore the project to its original appearance after the upgrades were complete.
