LaBella’s RoleRead more about how LaBella was involved with this unique project.
The civil engineering team designed the drainage system, including the numerous field drains throughout the garden and underdrainage for the game/play areas, and coordinated foundation designs for the various game/play features. Artificial turf was installed for fall protection specified for all play areas consisting of a 3-inch fine gravel layer, a 1.5-inch safety foam layer, and multi-layered synthetic turf with rubber granulated infill. Foundations for the custom game pieces were designed and installed around existing shallow utilities and constructed within a compact work zone while the museum was operational.
The landscape architects assisted with the layout of the site, production of the landscape plan, layout of the lighting, orchestrating the exact location of ‘game’ sculptures, fine tuning of grading, and selection of materials such as epoxy coating on walkway squares, resilient artificial turf surface, lighting products, decorative fencing, boulders, and stone products.
The electrical engineering team prepared plans and specifications for the installation of an extensive power supply system to many of the features, as well as lighting. Lighting consists of LED uplighting for the various play features, bollard pathway lighting for nighttime use of the park, and security lighting of the area and beneath the canopy.
