Chazen prepared detailed site development/civil engineering plans for a new 35-acre campus consisting of three (3) new rustic-contemporary, one-story buildings. The site was configured to emphasize the school’s connection with the outdoor environment.

Following a much anticipated grand opening, Chazen prepared supplemental civil engineering plans for a new chapel, student cabin and storage shed along with an assessment of possible alternative sewage disposal systems to support additional students and faculty.

Long Beach Central School District

Long Beach, NY

Chazen provided construction phase engineering services for modernization of the high school campus and new athletic facilities. Chazen assisted the District with design of a new vehicular network for entry and exit points, parking designations for various users and bus routing. The existing arrangement of roadways and walkways was altered to increase safety of the school children by limiting access between buildings to bus only, transforming the area into a ‘pedestrian mall’ during school hours. Chazen also collaborated on the athletic field designs with another consultant to create a new synthetic turf field that serves athletes for lacrosse, soccer and football. Athletic improvements at the high school also included softball and baseball fields, a practice field, handball and tennis courts. Chazen had primary design responsibility for design of stormwater management facilities, utilities, erosion and sediment control and pavement surfaces, with shared design responsibilities for landscaping, courtyard design and site amenities.

Poughkeepsie City School District

Poughkeepsie, NY

Chazen completed a number of projects for the Poughkeepsie City School District, including surveying, civil engineering and landscape architecture services.

Chazen’s most recent project included improving athletic fields at the high school. Chazen prepared the layout and design for several field components, including conversion of the existing football field and baseball fields into multi-use synthetic turf fields. The project also included the addition of sports field lighting, increased bleacher capacity, new property fencing and a new backstop. During the design of the project the District encountered several environmental issues related to fuel contamination and solid waste disposal.
