This LEED silver project in the Oakhurst neighborhood of the City of Decatur conserves water, employs recycled materials and energy-efficient systems, and uses natural light throughout. Breedlove Land Planning, as a consultant to LP3 Architecture, provided all site design services for this award winning project.

Construction has begun on the City of Douglasville’s Hunter Park Community Center. This project is the first phase of a complete renovation of this 80 acre community amenity. The building, designed by Lyman Davidson Dooley Architects, is being constructed by Benning Construction.

The larger park renovation should commence in a couple months.
140,000 square feet of synthetic turf has been delivered to Duncan Creek Park.

One of the most exciting site features of the Clarence Brown Civic Center in Bartow County, Georgia is a new outdoor stage and amphitheater. This LEED Silver pending project, lead by the architecture firm of Lyman Davidson Dooley, Inc., is currently under construction.

Breedlove Land Planning provided all site design services for this state of the art facility.
The third phase of construction for the new Mount Pisgah School athletics complex is underway. Breedlove Land Planning provided site design services for this 34 acre project which includes a new track and field complex, football stadium, soccer, baseball and softball fields and associated amenities. Perhaps the most remarkable feature is that the site is a former landfill. BLP worked closely with the school, GeoSyntec Consultants and New South Construction to mitigate the site in an effort to reclaim the land and further the mission of the school.
