Carroll Elementary School

 

Location: Bernalillo, NM

Completed: 2011

with FBT Architects

The design for this elementary school renovation includes an improved pick-up/drop-off and entry plaza, walkways, gathering areas with seating, xeric plantings, small turf areas and an outdoor classroom for the kindergarten. MRWM worked closely with FBT Architects on the hardscape design to improve accessibility of walkways to play areas and overall site circulation. As an additive alternate, MRWM also designed upgrades for an existing educational habitat area that has fallen into disrepair. The upgrades include clearing, weeding, and revegetation, and increasing safety and usability for the school and surrounding community. The project was completed on a fast-track basis, as design drawings had already been completed by the architect and construction was underway at the beginning of the landscape design process.
