New Albany-Plain Local Schools – New 2-8 Building
Moody Engineering provided civil engineering services for the reworking of the New Albany School Campus associated with the new Flex Building. In addition to accommodating the new building, the site reworking will improve traffic flow and parking within the campus. The site improvements entailed construction of a new bus loop capable of accommodating 40 buses, a 165 space student lot and a 207 space staff parking lot. The existing middle school lot was redesigned to expand and consolidate the parking for improved access and flow. The project required the existing varsity baseball and softball fields, as well as the middle school football field and practice fields to be relocated to a new site on the campus property. The tennis courts were also reconstructed and expanded. The storm sewers throughout the project area were reworked and a new wetland detention facility was designed to provide stormwater management as well as provide educational opportunities for the school district on an ongoing basis when complete. In association with the new building construction, a new water loop for fire protection as well as domestic service were designed as well as sanitary service lines.
In conjunction with the sitework on this project, an extended detention basin with wetland was constructed. The basin featured a meandering channel with intermittent pools and wetland plantings. Moody Engineering and our environmental consultant worked to develop the basin for maximum water quality benefit.
The project was developed in phases on a tight timeline to enable the school to meet an aggressive schedule for opening their new building.
