The existing gravel playground was removed, and a new synthetic turf surface was installed in place to provide a safe play area for students. Summit Engineering provided design services including topographic surveying, geotechnical subsurface investigation, design, and corresponding reports; and civil design including site plan, grading plan, utility plan and profile, horizontal control plan, details, technical specifications, and engineer’s estimate as well as construction staking and inspection services.
