Jensen Design & Survey, Inc. provided entitlement permitting, engineering, and construction survey services for a 12,500 square foot state-of-the-art wine making facility in Oak View. The building contains designated areas for grape crushing, fermentation, barrel storage, case goods storage, offices, and a quality control laboratory.
The project required a Conditional Use Permit from the County of Ventura and a sewer main extension from Ojai Valley Sanitary District which triggered LAFCO review and approval. Engineering services included grading and storm-water plans, utilities, and was modified during the design process to include an onsite farm manager’s house. Due to the project’s location and nature of operation, special attention was required in negotiating project conditions for the CUP. In lieu fees for road improvements were proposed and significantly reduced through negotiations with County Transportation.
