Long Beach City College

Development of the landscape implementation plan(s) followed a series of three Long Beach City College (LBCC) Campus Master Plan updates and a campus-wide utility upgrade project. Lynn Capouya, Inc. (LCI) was contracted as a Prime Consultant to address critical problems identified in the Infrastructure Master Plan and included drainage, hardscape, irrigation, and planting components resolving flooding issues, while fostering water quality and facilitating watershed compliance, implementing a Master Control system for irrigation to reduce water use, and providing sustainable planting solutions. The goal was to enhance the campus experience by developing functional and aesthetic guidelines for the ongoing bond construction program.


This facility in Huntington Beach is an innovative training center that develops the learning and technical skills of both cadets and students by providing an environment that best balance quality enhancements of both building design and landscape.

LCI achieved this goal by creating a park scenario for passive recreation, biddle and grinder courses for physical training activities and memorial as a focal point next to the building’s main entry. A number of prominent trees were protected through strict construction and management procedures while applicable stormwater techniques such as Modular Wetland Biofiltration systems were considered for the project.
