Worked closely with Campus staff to develop a complete renovation of Centennial Plaza located between the Roaden University Center, Henderson and Derryberry Halls. This project incorporated large multi-purpose plazas surrounded by low seat walls, architectural arbors and seating in some of the more intimate patio spaces and an outdoor stage for various Campus events. Improvements also included new pedestrian lighting and outdoor electric power supplies for student and staff use. One of the primary driving forces behind the layout design was to save as many of the mature specimen trees possible that gave the area so much character. We worked closely with the Director of Horticulture and Grounds to ensure the design conformed to the existing landscape where practical to help make this happen.
