Centennial Commons Downtown Park
F&V provided design and construction engineering for the City of Royal Oak’s new Centennial Commons park located in the heart of downtown. The 2.5 acre park is located on the site of the old City Hall and Police Station, and incorporated a 10’ hill/rock wall, a custom stage, a new terrace, a shade structure at the front of the City library, an enhancement of the existing veteran’s memorial, and a water feature.
While some initial public outreach was performed prior to F&V’s involvement on the project, our team delved through the information and held numerous design charettes and public outreach events to hone the design. Working with the City’s Downtown Park task force, numerous concepts were developed with the final one being selected by both the task force and the DDA.
From there, F&V performed the design engineering including the grading and utility plans, oversight and review of
structural components, and managed the electrical design. F&V also assisted in construction engineering, including regular site visits, review of RFIs, and development of CCD’s and ASI’s.
