This 14-story, urban school administration building was designed with a retail and common area on the first floor and a partial basement. V3 provided the site/civil engineering, including stormwater detention using a StormTrap system. It was a tight site, and some creative site design was necessary to fit the StormTrap system between the multiple foundations and grade beams. In addition, a green roof system was used to reduce the amount impervious area, thus helping to control the runoff leaving the site. The project was awarded LEED Silver certification.
