As a consultant to EMC Planning Group, SSA assisted in the development of downtown design guidelines that were adopted by the City of Gonzales. To implement the guidelines and revitalize the downtown, the city selected SSA as the prime consultant to lead civil, structural and electrical engineering subconsultants.
The SSA team provided design services from the development of conceptual design alternatives to construction documentation. Coordinating with the City of Gonzales Revitalization Committee, City Council, Public Works Department and subconsultants, SSA developed cost estimates and project phasing guidelines. Highlights of the final design included entry way features, reconfigured traffic patterns, traffic calming techniques, alley parking, pedestrian access, landscaping, new pedestrian areas, utility line under-grounding, transit stop, areas for outdoor events, landscaping, and streetscape furnishings.
