Rose Villa Phase 3 Opening Soon!

Posted by

Scheduled for completion by the end of the summer, Rose Villa’s new Phase 3 expansion is looking fantastic!  The expansion features three new neighborhoods – The Schroeder Lofts, a 4+ story apartment building that is a continuation of Main Street in the urban hub, the Trillium Townhomes, the second zero net energy neighborhood at Rose Villa, and Madrona Grove, a state-of-the-art 24-hour-care supportive living neighborhood.  HDG provided full civil engineering design services for the three neighborhoods, which connect to the surrounding campus and feature courtyards, accessible pathways, and a variety of services.

Escaping the Stress

HDG team members escaped the office for a little fun with an adventure by Portland Escape Rooms.  With a myriad of puzzles solved, we escaped with four minutes to spare.  The room’s 57% success rate is now a bit higher, and we all had a great time!

Tukwila Springs nearly complete!

HDG provided civil engineering services for the renovation of this former nursing home and behavioral health services facility into a 48-unit affordable housing development.  Civil engineering included design for the renovation of the site and existing building. Unique to this project, HDG worked with an arborist and landscape architect to save several large Douglas Fir trees that were immediately adjacent to the existing parking lot. With team effort, a plan was developed that maintained existing asphalt to prevent damaging roots. HDG then designed a dry creek bed connected to the parking lot and placed over the top of the area with tree roots to direct water into an existing catch basin.
