Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates

ASLA Design Award of Excellence

Pine & Swallow provided soils consulting services from design through construction phases for several projects on campus. Pine & Swallow addressed soils and drainage issues for various areas of the Alumnae Valley development where existing soil contamination required isolation from all new landscape development, including a pond and wetland system designed for stormwater remediation. Pine & Swallow also conducted site analysis and prepared soil specifications and drainage design for construction of a new competition soccer field as part of the Paint Shop Pond remediation project. For the Alumnae Valley parking garage site, Pine & Swallow reviewed plans and provided soil and plant materials specifications and soil design for tree and shrub planting associated with the garage structure.
