DATE COMPLETED: 2013
CLIENT: EOA Architects (through Metro Parks Dept.)
Hodgson Douglas worked as a part of a design team on the creation of 3 Nature Centers in existing Metro Parks. Scope of Work included preparing building site plans, with parking, drives and walks. Factors of sustainability were taken into consideration including passive solar orientation and the use of paving materials that would result in minimal site impact. A green roof was created for Shelby Bottoms and ADA factors were an integral part of the design. Planting plans were prepared making use of plant materials native to each specific park.
