The College School

Frontenac Engineering provided the civil/structural engineering for a project that included a feasibility analysis, site master plan, and design of an interpretive/educational center on the 28 acre rural property. We also designed a 16 space parking lot and bus turn-around loop at the College School’s LaBarque Creek Property. Improvements utilized porous concrete pavers for the parking areas and a central rain garden/wildlife pond.

Services provided:

Phase 1 included lower site improvements; a new site entry, drive, bus drop off and parking, pervious parking, a stormwater management, rain garden, and bridge sufficient for fire truck access.

Phase 2 includes the 3,000 sf Learning Center which will include classroom/community space, workshop and restrooms, a 1,800 sf plaza and a 1,350 sf outdoor classroom/pavilion. The anticipated construction cost is $1.4 million.

Previous work for TCS includes: civil engineering for design of low impact, sustainable site improvements including permeable pavements, high albido pavements, rain gardens, natural landscaped areas, down-lighting, zero-irrigation landscaping, and wind turbine. Design of new porous pavement parking area using local, sustainable materials and Stormwater infiltration methods to minimize development costs and infrastructure requirements.
