Savannah College of Art and Design Museum of Art
Wolverton was tasked with designing the land development and associated improvements for a nearly 5 acre development for the Savannah College of Art and Design's Museum of Art. The project challenge was to design this development in the limits of a historic rail yard and the ruins of an existing brick warehouse. Due to property constraints, a 35,000 cubic foot underground detention system is utilized to satisfy City of Savannah Stormwater Ordinance. We provided engineering and landscape architectural design services for a project that included master planning, site development, design of water distribution system, wastewater collection system, storm water drainage, roads, paving, grading, streetscape, hardscape, structural (retaining wall) and landscape design for a 4.91-acre development consisting of 60,000 square foot museum building including exterior hardscape and landscape design in a courtyard area. Scope included design of multiple retaining wall to attenuate grade and facilitate access to adjacent buildings and courtyard areas and included streetscape design along the 900-linear-foot Turner Street frontage. The site is located in historic downtown Savannah.
