Palisades Episcopal School
Located within the beautiful Charlotte area neighborhood of the Palisades, the school embarked on its first phase of expansion with a new 12,000 multi-purpose gymnasium and auditorium. Other aspects of the project included master planning and phasing studies, as well as coordination with community developer regarding an on-site master erosion control basin to be converted to a detention basin. Other challenges included, poor unsuitable soils, limited parking opportunities, and stacking impacts to adjacent neighborhood streets during peak hours.
