Smart & Final Civil Site Design

The Smart & Final Extra building project in Downtown Los Angeles marked Smart & Final’s first truly urban format store out of 186 locations. It also marked the grocery chain’s first “Extra” concept, which is a larger version of their traditional store that includes fresh foods in a 25,000-square-foot space, as opposed to their traditional store measurement of 17,000 square feet.


CWE provided civil engineering design services to assist architecture firm, Lean Arch, Inc. Services ranged from utility search and design to plans for demolition, grading, and drainage, along with a Standard Urban Stormwater Mitigation Plan (SUSMP).
