Greening Urban provided full civil engineering for the redevelopment of Van Ness Elementary School through final permit and construction administration. The school underwent a complete renovation and new addition that transformed the entire campus into an engaging, multi-sensory experience for children to learn and flourish. Services included full permit documents for DOEE Erosion and Sediment Control and Stormwater Management, DC Water Utilities, and DDOT Public Space compliance. Construction Administration included multiple site visits through final construction.

Greening Urban also provided concurrent full civil engineering services for Joy Evan Park adjacent to Van Ness Elementary School. We met multiple challenges during the design and permitting of both projects, including integrating a multi-faceted stormwater management plan, and addressing conflicts because of old DC Water Infrastructure running through the project site area.
