Stonemark performed construction management services for a new parking lot and site improvement project for Laguna Blanca School, an independent K-12 academy on 35 acres in the exclusive enclave of Hope Ranch in Santa Barbara. Because work had to be performed in the 3-month window of summer break, the project required assertive expediting and tight coordination among the disciplines involved. The Client’s desired overall green design incorporated pervious concrete & pavers, storm water retention on-site, site lighting and extensive native plant landscaping.

In my professional work, their project management makes a perfect collaboration to the artistry of my projects—a recipe for project success!
