This new LEED certified regional medical campus building for the Cleveland Clinic embodies the idea of the built-environment in a natural setting. The $50 million project gives the Cleveland Clinic a dramatic presence in northern Summit County, as well. The design team worked to locate the new building in an environmentally sensitive way, preserving existing stone outcroppings, wetlands, woods, and streams.
In addition, the site features over 50 acres of open space dedicated in a conservation easement. The master landscape plan makes use of native plants, created storm water wetlands and prairie grasses, with large masses of existing trees being saved and integrated into the design. Our role was to assist in site planning and prepare the site grading and landscape construction documents, as well as closely coordinate the plans with the Ohio EPA environmental requirements.
