Hackett School

E&LP was retained by the Big SandBox organization to provide engineering design for the new gateway project at Horatio B. Hackett Elementary School. The first phase in a larger schoolyard greening effort, the completed gateway serves as a motivator and beacon to the surrounding neighborhood that the school is making significant strides towards revitalizing its grounds.

E&LP provided structural and foundation design for the gateway supports and footings as well as custom detailing of the brackets and connectors for the multiple sign pieces forming the arch of the gateway. E&LP also provided shop drawing review and coordinated directly with the gateway fabricators as this was a design build effort.
