MedImpact Corporate Headquarters at Scripps Gateway
The MedImpact Corporate Headquarters is an impressive glass and stone structure on 4.36 acres. This six-story commercial building and four-story parking garage project presented a number of challenges for the Fuscoe team, including various soil conditions over granite rock and construction of retaining walls. Fuscoe provided an integrated stormwater quality approach and strategy, which included analysis and design of two small bioretention ponds for high quality stormwater treatment. This integrated approach facilitated the implementation of other features, such as pervious pavers, landscape areas, roof drain downspout filters and installation of a project specific modified Filterra® Unit. This design achieved the LEED goals required for Stormwater Design Quantity and Quality Control, critical in achieving the overall goal of 34 points for LEED Gold Certification. Additionally, the team’s dedication to “heroic service” was evident in expedited processing through the City of San Diego, where permits were obtained ahead of the expiration date of a critical previous entitlement.
