Venice Beach Oceanfront Walk
RRM Design Group provided the planning, construction documents, bid services, cost estimates, and construction administration for the award-winning renovation of the 1.7 mile Venice Beach Oceanfront Walk. The project required extensive public outreach, including a series of interactive public meetings, workshops, newsletters, and camera surveys, working with various community groups and City agencies. Within this divided community, RRM was able to precipitate a consensus by using design solutions that maintained the City’s flair. The design itself proved vandal resistant, safe, low maintenance, innovative, artistic, and attractive. The plan refurbished six restrooms, added four new restrooms, and provided the conceptual design plans for plazas, performance areas, recreational facilities, basketball courts, paths (bike, skate, and pedestrian), public art, gateway monuments, street furniture, and children’s play areas.
