Northern Liberties Recreation Center

G&A is designing Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) improvements for five sites in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia.  This project falls under G&A’s GSI design contract with the Philadelphia Water Department and covers more than two acres.  These sites will feature green street concepts as surface features, such as stormwater tree trenches, rain gardens, and porous pavers.  For the recreation center’s main focal point, the team developed an innovative stormwater management design new to Philadelphia: medium diameter deep infiltration columns to handle water from nearby rain garden and courtyard area, saving PWD additional expenses on over-excavation of stone trenching.
