Mobile Home & R.V. Parks Civil Engineering Services
Beginning with the design of large trailer villages used to house military personnel during the Second World War, to the present-day design of multi-hundred-unit mobile home parks, our firm has been involved in mobile home, modular home, and recreational vehicle (R.V.) park design since its inception. JBA has been involved in over two-hundred and sixty (260) mobile home developments since 1941, including the design of individual modular units, overall park design, and temporary mobile facilities design. In addition to engineering design services typical of any residential development (grading, street improvements, water, wastewater, and storm drain design), JBA has also designed many of the improvements unique to mobile home/modular home/R.V. Park developments, including specialized water treatment facilities, ponds, and recreational areas. We have also developed management, accounting, and promotional materials for the mobile home industry in the past.
While our most recent mobile/modular home development project was a 338-unit mobile home park in the Lake Havasu community of San Bernardino County, CA, JBA’s numerous mobile/modular/R.V. park projects in California include a 451-unit mobile home park in the City of Ontario, an 800-space R.V. park in Anza City, a 250-unit mobile home park in Mount Shasta, a 191-unit mobile home park in the City of Oxnard, and a 240-unit mobile home park in the City of Los Angeles. JBA has also provided feasibility studies and/or facilities analyses for existing mobile home park conversion projects on several occasions – most recently, for the Windward Village Mobile Home Park in the City of Long Beach.
New construction projects and addition/expansion projects for mobile/modular home parks and R.V. parks generally require many of the same design services as Residential Developments. Services provided by JBA that are unique to mobile/modular/R.V. parks include the following:
Mobile/modular home and R.V. park facilities analyses are performed for a variety of reasons, including changes in park ownership to the conversion of parks to residential subdivisions. Typical analyses involve site visits to determine the condition of utilities, facilities, and park amenities, and the preparation of a Facilities Analysis Report with photos to substantiate findings and recommendations regarding repairs/improvements.
Forensic Engineering/Expert Witness
Members of our firm often serve as Expert Witnesses on cases involving mobile/modular/R.V. park engineering/ construction failures. Examples of mobile home park-related cases for which JBA has provided its Forensic Engineering/Expert Witness services include the following:
