GIS ASSET DATABASE MANAGEMENT

BMLA offers Asset Database Management in an effort to increase the maintenance efficiency of landscape assets for public and private agencies. We map metadata for every tree, irrigation component, and amenity on the client’s site. Maintenance teams then have more information about the site and can arrive with all the right parts for the service they conduct.

GIS ANALYSIS MAPPING

Locating the best parcel of land for a park, housing tract, or commercial center requires a great deal of due diligence. BMLA uses the power of GIS to provide our clients with analysis mapping that pinpoints a parcel of land for development according to the client’s specific needs.

VALUE ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTABILITY EVALUATION

BMLA can review and evaluate your existing landscape project in terms of the current construction costs in order to identify savings or potential budget busters. We also provide constructability reviews of landscape projects in light of California Landscape Water Conservation laws, the American Disabilities Act and California Green Building Codes.

BMLA, Inc. Statement of Qualifications - Recreation


WATER CONSERVATION The water shortage in California has a direct impact on all of its inhabitant’s lives. Southern California in its natural state cannot support the water demands its citizens place on it. As a result we are becoming increasingly aware of our water usage and its impact on our environment. While there are numerous avenues being taken to combat the drought, realizing that some plants require more water and care than others, and then choosing what is appropriate given our climate can have a massive impact when one takes into account the amount of irrigated landscape found in Southern California. A transformation is necessary to adopt landscapes that minimize water use while retaining their purpose, attractiveness, and cultural value. Substituting lower water using, California-friendly plant material rather than traditional high demand turf is necessary in order to transform our region into a more responsible, ecologically driven one. One that can respond to and reform in response to the water crisis so that we can prevent future ones before they take place.

BMLA, Inc. Statement of Qualifications - Recreation


BMLA integrates water conservation principles into every project we design. From demonstration gardens that provide examples of Californiafriendly plants to residential design that minimizes water use, our attention to detail integrates water conservation as an important layer of our landscape design. Our expert use of site appropriate plant material, irrigation technologies and complementary hardscape elements combine to create landscapes with identity and purpose, all while conserving our valued water resource. Our staff has years of experience with water-conserving irrigation including smart controllers and point-source drip application. Our horticultural expertise spans from coastal climates to the inland empire to the high and low deserts. Our staff collaborates with clients to create sustainable landscapes that are easily maintainable, functional and enjoyable.

PARKS MASTER PLAN - LAKE ELSINORE, CA CLIENT: City of Lake Elsinore The City of Lake Elsinore required an update to their Parks Master Plan in order to respond to changes within the city related to growth.

BMLA, Inc. Statement of Qualifications - Recreation


EL CERRITO SPORTS PARK - CORONA, CA CLIENT: County of Riverside Economic Development Agency El Cerrito Sports Park is a joint venture between Riverside County and the City of Corona.

BMLA, Inc. Statement of Qualifications - Recreation


GRIFFIN PARK - CORONA, CA CLIENT: City of Corona After falling into disrepair, the City of Corona reached out to BMLA to help get feedback and direction in the rebirth of Griffin Park. This effort involved community outreach and survey analysis to design three different concepts based on community feedback. The three design alternatives and cost estimates were presented to the city and one option was selected to proceed to construction documentation.

BMLA, Inc. Statement of Qualifications - Recreation


MILLER PARK AMPHITHEATRE CLIENT: City of Fontana At the heart of the community of Fontana is an underused park that offers a great programing opportunity to bring community members into the downtown.

CONTRERAS PARK - CORONA, CA CLIENT: City of Corona After the City of Corona’s Department of Water planned a new well in an existing pocket park, they found they needed to redesign the park. BMLA planned the update of the park to accommodate well equipment and serve as an example of a water-conserving landscape. California-friendly plants were grouped by color to create a dramatic effect and so that visitors could easily locate plant types that might be used in their home gardens.

BMLA, Inc. Statement of Qualifications - Recreation


DOWNTOWN CORONA - CORONA, CA. CLIENT: City of Corona In an effort with the City of Corona’s ‘NextGen’ team, BMLA assisted in a site analysis and rendering of the city’s vision for Downtown Corona. Updates to existing streets and infrastructure, the inclusion of signage, themes, and artwork, as well as the construction of a new parking garage were created through rendered perspectives.

BMLA, Inc. Statement of Qualifications - Recreation


CITRUS WATER PARK - CORONA, CA CLIENT: City of Corona Evident in the design of this water park, we wanted to highlight the city of Corona’s citrus farming history. The theme is carried through every detail. The citrus crate benches showcase local farming families, a giant orange leaf provides shade, and the splash pad surface emulates a orange slice. All of these elements create visual interest in this small but popular project.

BMLA, Inc. Statement of Qualifications - Recreation


OXNARD VILLAGE THREE PARKS - OXNARD, CA CLIENT: Oakwood Development Theme development plays a large role in BMLA’s creative design process. Often times the story is best told through a series of images that help to demonstrate the nature of the intended design. These images, word pictures, and design sketches then inform the layout and design of the project. Additionally, they can be used as graphic representation of the ethos of the design when communicating with clients and stakeholders. This is just the case with the Three Parks Project in Oxnard. BMLA found that the most direct and impactful way to communicate design intent was through a series of simple photos depicting snippets of what life in these parks was intended to be like.

BMLA, Inc. Statement of Qualifications - Recreation


LAKE CUNNINGHAM REGIONAL PARK - SAN JOSÉ, CA CLIENT: City of San José Thinking out of the box, BMLA was able to develop two unique adventure playground concepts that satisfied and exceeded client expectations. “Picnic in the Park” is a playground that allows children to be creative in their play and stimulate their senses in many ways. Fun activities could include: climbing up the picnic basket and sliding down a celery stick, playing hide and seek in Swiss cheese, or running through a maze of simulated cat-tails and grass leaves. “Treasure Island” is another adventure playground that whisks kids away back to the days of pirates, hidden treasures, and fairy tale stories.

The conceptual development of this master planned community was based on the parameters of using several of the detention basin areas as open park space. The conceptual design of these small park spaces utilized elements that would allow for periodic flooding while maintaining active open space elements for the majority of the year. BMLA emphasizes design that begins with the broad picture based upon a full understanding of the context and constraints of the project site and then gradually fine tunes the design solution.

FONTANA PARK - FONTANA, CA CLIENT: City of Fontana Originally conceived as a municipal sports facility, the city of Fontana began by locating an appropriate site in their northern region. Early in the process of programming and conceptualizing the park, community leaders and citizens brought to the planning table the idea of bringing to life a culture of community health through activity.
