Pepperwood Preserve Construction Staking
Project NamePepperwood Preserve Construction Staking
Project LocationSonoma & Napa Valley, CA
Pepperwood Preserve is a 3,117 acre nature preserve that snakes between the Sonoma and Napa Valleys. Its mission is to protect the natural landscape and provide opportunities for research, education, and conservation of the many and varied ecosystems that call the preserve home. Green Valley’s survey team was afforded the unique opportunity to work at the preserve by providing staking services for the construction of a new 9,500 square foot research building. Nestled into the side of a hill, the building features a research laboratory, classrooms, library, and meeting rooms, and is made of raw materials intended to weather naturally. When completed, the Pepperwood Foundation will apply for LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold certification.
Green Valley’s land surveying services included the construction staking for the new building site and parking lot, and the layout of new utilities (water, sewer, electrical, CATV, and telephone).
