This key project dramatically impacts UNC Charlotte’s campus core. This central open space functions as an organizing element from the early beginnings of the University’s growth. It provides the necessary open space for students and activities as well as the needed space between the first campus buildings. The heart of the academic core was renovated and redefined to meet a number of key goals such as strengthening the pedestrian experience, creating a memorable central space for the campus and providing a sustainable design which tends to lower maintenance. McAdams, the prime consultant, provided landscape architecture, civil engineering and surveying for conceptual design, schematic design / design development, construction documents and construction phase services.
