Spotlight Project: Spalding University Campus “Greening”
Spalding University is an urban university spread out over 5 city blocks within the heart of Louisville’s historic preservation district. The University is growing and has developed a campus masterplan to assist in its growth. SABAK, WILSON & LINGO, Inc. was tasked with reviewing the masterplan and developing a strategy to “Green Up” the campus, both visually with landscaping & other site amenities while also improving the site’s water quality utilizing Green Infrastructure techniques to eliminate storm water run-off to the existing combined sewer system.
Located at the center of campus, “Spalding Commons” is the largest and most prominent green space on campus, which includes an open green, a signature campus feature, an underground infiltration basin and bioswales. An existing alley was closed and converted into a “Green Alley”, which is made up of permeable pavers & native planting strips. This new green alley is the pedestrian spine that links the campus together. Phase 1 construction was completed in the Summer of 2013.
