Wood/Patel provided engineering services on this new elementary school for the Higley Unified School District. This 120,000 square-foot building is located on a 20-acre site within the Power Ranch master-planned community. Wood/Patel was engaged early to provide preliminary grading and earthwork engineering contributing valuable input on building and recreation field locations that reduced the impact of site/soil conditions resulting from prior agricultural use. This effort also aided the School District in development negotiations with the landowner. Wood/Patel remained on the project through design, post-design, and administered construction observation assistance. Off-site street improvements, including median redesign and turn lanes, were attentively coordinated with the Town’s engineering and traffic divisions.
