As the population of California continues to grow, urban spaces are rapidly being developed into areas considered to be environmentally sensitive. In order to prevent extensive damage to our state’s delicate ecosystems, environmental regulations are often enforced by local organizations during the course of impactful operations such as construction projects. These regulations will often vary from one site to another, depending on a given site’s location and proximity to the environmentally sensitive areas. No two jobs will posses the exact same specifications for dealing with this aspect of construction, and as such some will require more intense regulations than others. With this in mind, the case study that I will be reporting on is an example of a job requiring the more extensive end of regulations. This paper’s objective will be to outline this specific project’s details, requirements, and discuss how it's intricate situation makes it a learning experience for future projects with a similar environmental scope.
