WOODPATEL was selected to lead the design team for Phase 1 of the new Veteran’s Memorial at the Tempe Town Lake Beach Park. Working closely with the consultant team, City of Tempe, Rio Salado Foundation, and the Arizona Veterans’ Foundation, the historic Ash Avenue bridge abutment was transformed into a memorial honoring all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. Ultimately, the memorial will consist of three phases: the Veterans Parade, Court of Service, and Overlook and Visitors’ Plaza. WOODPATEL completed the initial land survey and coordinated the project kickoff. Grading and drainage plans were prepared to direct construction of the proposed landings, hardscape grades, ramps, and stairways wrapping around the abutment.
