Heaviland Landscape Management Plays Key Role in Carlsbad Office Renovation

Heaviland Landscape Management, a commercial landscape installation and maintenance company, recently played a critical role within a team of contractors to create a new look for Ocean Point in Carlsbad. The 82,991 square-foot office space is in located in an area that attracts many tech companies, and to offer the amenities that incoming employees value, the space underwent renovations and improvements.

Heaviland Landscape Management was identified for this project by Jamie Looney, president of Unite Pacific, a commercial property consulting group. Unite Pacific developed the conceptual plan and worked with The Gildred Companies, the ownership and management group that oversees Ocean Point. Together, the work of Heaviland, Unite Pacific, a team of designers and architects and multiple contractors created a new identity for Ocean Point through a complete exterior renovation.

“Prospective tenants in San Diego are looking to provide a work environment where their employees enjoy coming to each day,” said Looney. “Part of the culture of the San Diego region is spending time outside and taking advantage of the 330 days of sunshine.”

Since outdoor space is important to potential tenants, Heaviland’s landscape installation work was a crucial component to Ocean Point. The Vista-based landscape management company overhauled the landscaping on the property, as well as the irrigation system.

“The project has multiple outdoor seating areas with improved walking paths to enhance connectivity within the project. The new landscape provides employees with an outdoor space to host informal meetings and enjoy the open air for a boost of creativity,” said Rajan Brown, vice president of design, construction and sustainability for Heaviland Landscape Management. “Ocean Point was retrofitted with recycled water and efficient drip irrigation, which will help lower water bills and eliminate irrigation runoff. We replaced the traditional turf and formal hedges with drought-tolerant plants. All our work was seamlessly connected with an overall improvement plan of an architectural overhaul, parking improvements and more.”

The Ocean Point Tech Center renovation project began in June 2015 and was completed this past October. The landscaping and new outdoor space, which Heaviland is contracted to maintain, will lead to increased value of the property and greater tenant satisfaction.

“To create a quality experience for the tenants, you need a high-quality team and we found that with Heaviland,” said Looney. “Heaviland’s execution of the landscape architect’s vision was spot on. The team was very professional and worked together with us as during the year-long process. They truly brought the project together better than I envisioned, on budget and on time.”
