James Dobson Elementary

In 2014, E&LP volunteered through Philadelphia’s Community Design Collaborative to provide professional design and engineering services to James Dobson Elementary School. E&LP provided site, landscape, green infrastructure, stormwater, site furnishing, and playground design for the project. In addition, E&LP organized and led public task force meetings and participated in community engagement regarding the project.

The final conceptual design integrates custom elements such as a gabion basket rain channel, amphitheater seating, site benches, a stage with green roof, recreation courts and track, custom play equipment design, and woodland and meadow plantings.
