Site Design, Survey & Staking

DGR performed the site design as well as the topographic surveying and construction staking of new Kuyper Residence Hall on the campus of Dordt College.

The new residence hall design included storm sewer upgrades, pedestrian facilities to multiple building levels, as well as some embankment work to match the existing site constraints.

Due to the building height, a perimeter sidewalk which serves as the access drive was included in the design to meet fire code.
