Tyler Food Truck Park

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
We have a vacant lot that we are planning to launch as a food truck park. We need design ideas for the layout of the food trucks (6 trucks). We need to figure out best method for getting trucks in and out of the property each day. Each truck needs to have a pad for parking with electric service. We also need to design an outdoor seating area for the food truck park patrons. Covered seating is a must. Picnic tables and sunblock structure with ceiling fans. Also, we need a small structure on the premises for a management office for the park (very small - one room), a small cabana style opening for a bar and two restrooms attached for guests. We'd like the perimeter of the food truck park to be enclosed with only one way in and out for guests and of course and in and out land for trucks. The park will be on the two adjoining lots shown on the attached survey and elevation. Please draw to scale!! We don't have any set-back limitations.
Wants:
Best use of space. Best solution for smoothly getting trucks in and out of park each day. Best layout of the park for comfort and shade.
Software:
  1. AutoCAD
Additional Information
Forgot to mention this. We'd also like to add a small bandstand to the covered area. Thanks!

Also, please send files in PDF format. I can't open AutoCad files.

Entry . Thanks for your comments Adam. I'd like the lot to be more of a half-circle line up of the trucks. My biggest concern about the 2 by 2 rows is that I want patrons to go from truck to truck in a smooth flow. If the trucks don't get maximum exposure, then they will not be as willing to pay rent for the space. Without good trucks, there's no beer to sell. Is there any other option you can think of that would put the trucks in a semi-circle? Maybe have them come in and park at the furthest end to the exit side of a half circle drive? Look forward to what you can come up with. Many thanks!

The patrons will be more concerned with where the beer is at and what band is on stage. Nobody is going to want to look at the side of a food truck like a kid looking at a cereal box in the morning. Your lots are narrow from front to back and do not accommodate and ndian circle of food trucks surrounding the eating area.

Have you ever been to a biker rally ? The food trucks should be like a bass drum, not a lead guitarist.

Another question for you:

Will all six trucks arrive and leave at the same time each day or should they be able to arrive and leave throughout the day?

Thanks!

I've uploaded a PDF copy of my first submission for your review. Your feedback is appreciated.

I'll also work on other options for the park layout.

Thank you!

Street parking is available so no need for parking on the lot. Thank you for your design. We would like to see the trucks in a circle around the picnic area for maximum exposure of the vendors. Our concern is that with the trucks lined up like this, the patrons can't see the sides of the trucks while eating. People at these parks often eat a little bite from each truck and go back for more. We want to encourage that sort of flow.

I've uploaded a sample site layout for your consideration. You may download the attached AutoCAD file to view the entire sample. Please let me know if you have any trouble viewing the file.

By the way, this is a neat concept for Tyler. I'm sure there will be a lot of positive buzz in the area. Congrats!

Hello!

Will the site the need parking space for patrons or will you rely solely on street parking?

Thanks!

Adjustable Serving Tupperware
In theory, this is very basic. Although I am just a law student and by no means an engineer of any sort. My idea is to create a tupperware that has slits in a grid like form on the bottom and sides. Additionally there would be slits under the lid. With the grid-like slits, one would be able to put inserts in order to separate there food. with the insert going into the bottom, sides and the lid, there would be a nice seal from any liquids or foods mixing with the others. Obviously, the point of the grid is to be able to create different sized servings and adjust them from bouncing around. Basically, one could put a perfect compact cup of rice, another for veggies etc. The preserving tupperware current on the market do not allow this and one has to purchase a thousand of them. My vision is for it to be able 10 inches in length with a 5 inch witch and about 2.5 inches tall. The top of the tupperware and lid should look similar to your standard rubbermaid tupperware. the walls of the tupperware should not be less or more than 90 degrees. The corners and need to be rounded. The slits them selves should not be to shallow, for that would defeat the purpose of them. My estimation is that they would be about .5 centimeters. Because of the slits, the bottom and sides could/maybe/should form a ridge like surface. (think of ruffles) Lastly, the ridges, or slits should be continuous, at least in my mind around the entirety of the tupperware, which means the lid will need to account for vertical ridges along the walls of the tupperware and still be able to seal it. Although I will not prepay, being the cautious man of law that I am, payment will be given upon the winner being chosen. AND, in the event that my price is significantly low balled and outrageous I will increase it if no one in their right mind would accept it. Thank you.
Suspended carbon fibre hammock bath
As part of my home renovation I would like to create a stunning and comfortable carbon fibre hammock bath, which will be suspended by two wall mounted supports. The bath will be manufactured by taking the 3D CAD model created by this design contest and creating a wooden blank using a CNC machine. The wooden blank will then be wrapped in carbon fibre cloth for strength, waterproofing and aesthetics. I have some dimensions, weight specifications and other requirements such as the location of the bath filler, bath waste, water pipes and head rest.
