City of Austin, Republic Square

Austin, Texas

Republic Square is a 1.8-acre Austin Parks and Recreation department site. The major scope intended to provide planning and design services for physical improvements to the square. The guide for this project was the Republic Square Master Plan report created in 2013. The area between the existing park property line along San Antonio Street and the Federal Courthouse Plaza was considered as part of the 1.8-acre park scope. Improvements to the site include utilities, lighting, streetscape design, site amenities, irrigation, and trees.

Encotech was retained to provide electrical system, lighting and above grade plumbed fixtures, such as drinking fountain connections and hose bibbs. An electric panel was designed to allow for power to a restaurant Kiosk and support building. Stub-outs for wet utilities were set within 5’ of the new building pads. Plumbing services also included water and wastewater piping load analysis, layout, sizing, and riser diagrams. Space was planned for a grease trap and was coordinated with sanitary service locations.
