CIVIL AND ENVIRONMENTAL - URBAN DEVELOPMENT
Location: San Clemente, California
Michael Baker International provided professional engineering, planning and surveying services, including the preparation of master plans infrastructure facilities, grading plans, improvement plans, and Tentative and Final Tract Maps for the Talega project located within the City of San Clemente and in an unincorporated area of Orange County. This 3,510-acre master-planned community proposes 4,965 dwelling units, a Fred Couples designed 18-hole golf course, industrial/commercial business parks, and a 1,172-acre open space reserve. Projects of this caliber and scope involve all areas of civil engineering, planning, surveying, and associated transportation services – areas in which we specialize.
Talega, which Michael Baker began working on in 1983, has been one of the premier landmark master-planned development projects completed in the company’s history. Development of the project required the resolution of several sensitive issues addressing hillside development and grading; growth management, especially with the City of San Clemente; infrastructure phasing; water availability, supply and storage; regional traffic circulation; stormwater quality and environmental issues.
