Site Development

DGR performed the boundary and topographic surveying as well as the site design of school building addition as a subconsultant of Architecture, Inc.

The school facility addition design included storm sewer upgrades, pedestrian facilities to multiple building levels, enhanced and expanded parking, as well as access road design to facilitate the future campus growth.

The design also included realigning water main and sanitary sewer main beneath the building link to avoid proposed footings as well as a rainfall harvesting system to collect and recycle rainwater from the building roofs.
