Stormwater SwaleUC Davis West Villageucdavis4167_Overall Shot_AWest Village is a 200 acre residential development for the University of California adjacent to the UC Davis campus. GreenWorks provided sustainable landscape architecture services in site planning and design for this expansion. We participated as part of a design team to create a vibrant and ecological residential village with streets, town square, greenbelts and public recreation facilities. It will be a national model of sustainable development on a large scale, addressing solar access and orientation, water conservation, stormwater treatment, aquifer recharge and a host of other ecologically sensitive design strategies. Pedestrian and bicycle circulation and connectivity to the campus and community are also key objectives.
