Project Description

The Altum Group provided engineering design and survey services for the San Diego European Motorcars showroom. The improvements included remodeling and renovating the Aston Martin and Jaguar Dealerships in the City of San Diego, at the landmark intersection of Balboa Avenue and Convoy Street.

Project Challenge

The existing Aston Martin and Jaguar dealerships are adjacent to each other, with very different “looks” and layers of old infrastructure that needed to be updated and unified into a cohesive design serving both dealerships. In addition, both project sites contained outdated stormwater infrastructure that were previously designed to discharge urban runoff into an area that is environmentally sensitive in terms of water quality

Project Solution

The Altum Group worked with the client’s architectural design team to develop a cohesive design that integrates the two developments together to create a functional visual statement for a key intersection in the City of San Diego. In addition, Altum applied its expertise in the area of water quality mitigation by incorporating modern stormwater management techniques that capture all on-site runoff for storage and treatment to help protect nearby environmentally sensitive drainages.
