Decatur Career Academy Design Diverts Waste from Landfill

Since 2009, The Decatur City School System has been working with DeKalb Technical College to open one of the state’s newest career academies for high school students.  This project, located at Decatur High School, is close to completion.  The site program includes plaza improvements, better access for the disabled and ecologically based stormwater pollutant control methods.  Breedlove Land Planning also designed an outdoor patio adjacent to the culinary arts center that transforms an old concrete service drive into an ornamental feature.  By specifying the careful demolition and salvaging of existing concrete, these panels are being reconstructed into an outdoor patio, thus utilizing existing resources and minimizing haul off to the landfill.  More to come as this project wraps up.
