The Whately Elementary School project involved comprehensive site design and engineering for a $3 million new elementary school located on a 10 acre rural site. Dodson & Flinker assisted the architect in site selection and building location and orientation. Additionally, we designed and specified access roads, parking areas, grading, drainage, planting, thinning and moving of existing trees, layout of play fields, and exterior lighting. The firm prepared complete construction drawings and supervised construction of project. One key feature of this project was the moving of over 100 existing trees through the use of a hydraulic tree spade.
