Grading and Drainage Plan
This project involved the initial creation of a fictitious landscape using clay. The site was then “surveyed” and drafted in Vectorworks to create contours. Two apartment complexes, a tennis court, two indoor recreational spaces, a kitchen, an amphitheatre, and an administrative building we added, with the main focus on storm water management. A comprehensive grading and drainage plan was made, taking note features that are sensitive to changes in slope, such as paved areas, including roads and the tennis court. including features such as bioretention swales and infiltration ponds, and minimizing the construction of retaining walls and slope stabilizers.
This project took many iterations over a four-month period, and included two laser-cut site models.
