Services Provided:  Landscape architecture, civil engineering, construction phase services

Project Description: CVL is currently providing professional design services to complete a redevelopment project for the Nelson Fine Arts Center and Music Plaza on the main campus of ASU in Tempe, AZ. Design objectives include the creation of an attractive, cohesive space which responds to a wide range of student uses and the resolution of existing flooding and site drainage issues across the plaza. CVL is also working within the parameters of a national certification program, the Sustainable Sites Initiative (“SITES”), to ensure the renovated site meets strict environmental design standards. As part of the SITES design process, CVL has engaged diverse stakeholders to ensure the design program addresses real needs and functions identified by users and is working closely with the contractor to ensure multi-phased construction meets SITES requirements.
