University School

Location: Nashville, Tennessee
Client: University School of Nashville

The University School of Nashville, a private school for children from kindergarten through grade 12, asked Lose & Associates, Inc. to develop a master plan for 72 acres located off-campus at the convergence of the Cumberland River and Whites Creek. The goal of the master plan was to develop the limited land available in a way that would expand the athletic, science and cultural education opportunities for the school’s students.

The master plan study involved wetland mitigation for 2.39 acres and a Phase I archeological study of Native American cultural areas. The master plan’s unique approach to wetland mitigation calls for University School students and staff to conduct long-term monitoring of constructed wetlands as part of their science studies.

The master plan provides University School with a baseball/softball complex, four soccer fields, eight tennis courts, a multi-purpose field and track, a water sampling station, an outdoor classroom and walking path and 400 parking spaces.
