HG Design Studio provided recommendations for a feasibility study for an addition to the Alumni House. We performed analysis of the capacity of existing utilities and created a stormwater management concept plan after a review of existing conditions, taking into consideration nearby construction, which will likely impact this site, and the need for compliance with state stormwater requirements for water quality. HG also designed the site layout and grading concepts to address the steep 17-20% average grades across the site.
HG continued to provide civil engineering and landscape architecture through completion of the project. The finished Alumni House is a signature design for W&M that respects the existing Alumni Center’s historic architecture as well as the college’s campus aesthetic. It features a new entrance and new events spaces, as well as beautiful gardens and terraces, including a Family Courtyard honoring multigenerational William & Mary families and other groups with deep connections to the College.
