2014 was an exciting year for Sherwood’s Community Outreach Team. As our offices continue to grow, our employees are more passionate then ever to get into the community and use our skills and labor to improve the places we live and work. In 2014 we had 4 large volunteering events, as well as helped with several smaller events. Here are some pictures to re-cap the year.

Here’s to doing even more as we go into 2015!

Boeddeker Park Opening Ceremony
December 16th, 2014 by Sherwood

Sherwood Project Manager Jimmy Galvez attended the opening ceremony for Boeddeker Park  in San Francisco. To turn this project into a reality, the Trust for Public Land worked with community members and generous donors to realize a needed public space within the surrounding dense urban environment.

The park boasts a community garden, outdoor work-out equipment, a basketball court, and a children’s play area. It also provides an ADA accessible route despite 16 feet of grade change in a relatively small site.

In order to manage stormwater, Sherwood Design Engineers developed a strategy that diverts over 270,000 gallons of rain water away from the city’s combined sewer system annually. The system utilizes newly installed pervious pavement, vegetated swales and a Triton chamber management system to capture and infiltrate water from the 2 year – 24 hour storm event (storms under roughly 2.4 inches).
