KZF Design partnered with MKSK to provide landscape architecture, civil engineering, grading and drainage services for the renovation of various green/open spaces, sidewalks, terraces, roads, parking lots in the areas of Bishop’s Woods, Yager Stadium, Upham Hall and King Library. The design team completed the design this work in under two months to accommodate construction during summer break.

Design ranged from redesign of the East Gate to Yager Stadium with new decorative concrete and improved drainage to the replacement of blue stone walks, steps and plaza areas at the iconic Upham Hall. The loop drive around Bishop’s Woods was converted from an asphalt road to a concrete pedestrian way, while maintaining handicap parking and service access in a “naked street” design. KZF also prepared a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) as part of the work to expedite the bidding and construction schedule.
