HALL & HALL ENGINEERS, INC.
Center Point-Urbana High School: Center Point, IA
Hall & Hall Engineers worked with Neumann Monson and Center Point Urbana School District to provide master planning, landscape architecture, civil design services and construction administration for the new high school facility located on a 33 acre parcel. Site design included bus/parent drop off drives, roadways, parking and athletic fields, storm water management, utilities and associated improvements. The project site allows for a future softball and baseball complex.
Open space areas of the site were planted with native prairie grass to help promote infiltration and reduce watering demands. Plant species selected for site landscaping are also hardy requiring low maintenance and water demands. No automated irrigation system was provided for the site. A detention basin impounds rain runoff and reduces the 100-year post developed discharge to the 5-year pre-developed rate, an ecological solution.
