Cary Academy - Cary, NC
The Cary Academy project challenged McNeely Associates PA to develop a site design for the future middle school and high school that would create an "academic village". In order to create a safe and well ordered environment, maintaining clear and open lines of site, the high school classroom building and its support buildings were arranged in a quadrangle formation with a lawn between them. To help mitigate the chance that middle school students might feel intimidated by high school students on the same campus, the middle school classroom building is "separated" from the quad by a fourteen foot vertical grade difference. The middle school has access to all of the support buildings just as the high school does, however, the middle school students enter the support buildings from the back and are never intentionally routed through the high school quad. As working drawings progressed, the Landscape Architect worked closely with the Architect to ensure that all buildings maintained a stately appearance in elevation. With over seventy feet of fall across the entire site, keeping the quad block of buildings relatively flat while keeping all facilities on site completely accessible, required ingenuity and finesse. The Landscape Architect prepared Construction Documents that encompassed site layout, grading, sediment and erosion control, irrigation and planting. Construction Administration was provided during the entire length of construction. Due to the ambitious construction schedule, the design process was greatly complicated by the fact that construction commenced before the final construction drawings were complete. This required constant reexamination and refinements to the site grading and drainage design as over forty-six construction change orders were caused by "additions" to the budget and scope.
