Starbucks – Norwalk, CA

Project Specifications:

Location: Norwalk, CA

Solution: StormTree

A tree filter system was placed adjacent to the drive-thru of a Starbucks in a heavily congested area. Due to the need to fast-track project completion to avoid disruption of café operations, and anticipated delays in receiving a closed box tree filter system from a different systems provider, the contractor contacted StormTree to design and size an alternate system. The design was completed in 24 hours, and; the civil engineer approved it two days later. The system was delivered within eight weeks of initial contact.

During excavation for the system, an irrigation line was discovered traversing the location for the concrete structure (see above 2nd photo). StormTree’s unique open design allowed for placing the structure over the irrigation line without disturbing or rerouting its location.

The system was installed during regular business hours without interruption—even the drive-thru lane remained open.
