Civil Engineering Site Design & Green Infrastructure
Spring 2014 to Winter 2015
Elements Engineering prepared the civil engineering design plans while working closely with the landscape architect and the Owner.
The project included a redesign of the east parking lot and the emergency access drive to improve pedestrian circulation, safety & accessibility as well as to optimize the parking. Also included was the redesign of four courtyards – three of which were internal to the hospital. The pediatric courtyard was redesigned to include a playground so that children in the hospital could not only see the playground from their rooms, but also play in a controlled and safe environment.
Parking lot drainage & aesthetic were improved by creating several bio-swales that serve both a stormwater function and as a landscape feature. Native plants were used in the swales to encourage bio-diversity.
Other areas of the site were also improved through the addition of sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, landscape features and improved drainage conditions.
The project was completed in the winter of 2015.
