PowerPlant Park, Livemore, CA

Architectural Precision Models did commercial scale model for PowerPlant Park in Richmond, CA. This is greenhouse for cannabis craft-growers and canna investors.

Entrepreneurs may no longer need to choose between San Francisco or Oakland to launch a venture in cannabis cultivation following Richmond’s approval of an 18-acre grow operation, PowerPlant Park, that will house 160,000 square feet of rentable canopy space.

San Francisco Business Times Features Richmond’s PowerPlant

Entrepreneurs may no longer need to choose between San Francisco or Oakland to launch a venture in cannabis cultivation following Richmond’s approval of an 18-acre grow operation, PowerPlant Park, that will house 160,000 square feet of rentable canopy space.
PowerPlant Park will consist of an 824,000-square-foot campus featuring a manufacturing and processing facility, CO2 extraction lab, pre-roll assembly line, full-service restaurant, tasting rooms, an education center and a meeting hall.
It would would employ more than 500 people, becoming Richmond’s second-largest employer after Chevron. CEO Richard Treiber will act as landlord for 44 greenhouses where tenants can grow and sell product as licensed microbusinesses — the first cannabis business model of its kind in the state, and possibly the country.

Cat Canyon West Field, CA

The topographical scale model for ERG’s Cat Canyon Oil field was commissioned by SCS Engineering. The oil field is a vast parcel of land located in Santa Maria, California. The scale model served as tool to describe ERG’s proposals that would add 187 new steam-injection oil wells and a new natural gas pipeline to the company’s existing operation of the oil field.

SCS Engineering were delighted how well the model turned out.
“Our team loves the model! We were able to portray a beautiful, to scale representation of the project to our community.”
– J. Thompson of SCS Engineering.

The model was featured in a recent meeting of the Santa Barbara County Planning Commission, see the article.

Scale Model of Casas de Las Brisas, Puerto Vallarta

The scale model of Casas de Las Brisas was constructed entirely from photographs and a single day site visit in Puerto Vallarta with a tape measure. I’ve developed a unique skill set for model building existing and historic structures without drawings. The CDLB model was contracted by one of the owners for his home in Houston, a unique perspective of real estate acquired over the years on display in his office.

To get an idea of the task’s challenge, visit villa’s site, www.casasdelasbrisas.com.

Another example of a scale model built using satellite imagery and photographs is my model of San Antonio.
