Adaire Elementary School

G&A has had the privilege of working for both the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) and the Trust for Public Land in the design and implementation of a new green school yard for the Adaire Elementary School in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia.  Under G&A’s Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) Design contract with PWD, G&A completed topographic survey, geotechnical investigation, GSI design, and permitting for the project.  The Trust for Public Land then hired G&A to develop the design for the remaining portions of the site including a playground and active recreation area with play mounds.  Since this is a green schoolyard project the rain garden was designed to allow for walking into and through it via a stepping stone pathway with access from the play area.
