Happy New Year From Sherwood Design Engineers
January 11th, 2017 by Wendy

From all of us at SHERWOOD DESIGN ENGINEERS Happy New Year!

In 2016 Sherwood worked on university campuses, parks and open spaces, government buildings, homes, and the central plaza in the largest private real estate development in U.S. history. All together we were site civil engineer on more than 60 projects across the Americas, Caribbean, and Middle East. What connects our diverse project portfolio is Sherwood’s ideas-to-implementation engineering approach.

For Sherwood, the New Year means a renewed commitment to connecting with our partners and our values to deliver world class design and engineering:

IMG_7401smWe connect the vision. We put the aesthetic and architectural vision for the project first, we apply innovation and sound engineering to make big ideas possible. 

We connect the people. Our focus on solution-oriented collaboration has a proven track record delivering plans from concept to successful implementation.

We connect the value. Our design integration approach co-optimizes systems in high performance landscapes that save money, reduce water and energy use, that get approved and get built.

WE ARE CIVIL ENGINEERS. We are a full service site civil engineering practice specializing in sustainable infrastructure engineering.


In 2017 Sherwood will push forward more innovative projects from concept to implementation:

Sherwood devised a net-zero water landscape system engineered with a curbless water collection to achieve Nelson Byrd Woltz’s vision for a spiraling park design. The result: this massive Related development with buildings designed by KPF will not contribute to the city’s overburdened stormwater system. In fact, it will help alleviate future sewer overflows and flooding.

For the City of San Francisco, the Moscone Convention Center expansion designed by SOM is under construction by Webcor, in part thanks to Sherwood’s innovative stormwater infrastructure design. Our solution – the use of trench drains instead of conventional drains – will improve underground connectivity of the North and South exhibition space. Close collaboration between Sherwood and city officials ensured our innovative approach was approved for the first time by San Francisco authorities.


Do you have any projects we can help you with? We would love to hear from you, if you can take a moment to reply to this email with your latest developments it would be great to connect. We wish you a healthy and happy New Year!
