This morning, Breedlove Land Planning (BLP) attended the ground breaking ceremony for Rockdale County’s newest addition – the Pine Street Elementary Replacement School. Located adjacent to Conyers Middle School, off Sigman Road, the existing Pine Street Elementary originally opened it’s doors in 1957. As one of the oldest schools in the Rockdale County School District, the time for replacement had come.
BLP worked with Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart and Associates, Inc. Architects (SRSSA) to design the new campus. The process began as a design competition in which various teams submitted conceptual plans of what the new school could be. The SRSSA / BLP team’s design strategy won the competition and began work to bring the ideas to life. The team worked with key stakeholders to refine the program, further develop the design, prepare construction documents and satisfy all permitting requirements in a timely manner. Completion of the project is estimated for June 2018.

The Rockdale News has just published a story on how “researchers from Georgia Tech are using the latest in digital design technology help bring to life a piece of American history. A group of researchers and students from the IMAGINE Lab at Georgia Tech’s College of Architecture have been selected for the design and 3D visualization concept for the Veterans Memorial Park, near Randy Poynter Lake.” Breedlove Land Planning has provided master planning and construction documentation for multiple phases of the Veterans Memorial Park over the last decade and is assisting in the development of this research and marketing tool.
Breedlove Land Planning is pleased to announce that it has worked to secure a contract with the Georgia Tech IMAGE Lab to provide 3D animation services for the full modeling of the Georgia Veteran’s Memorial Park. The IMAGINE (Interactive Media Architecture Group in Education) Lab “is composed of a group of researchers and students with a mission of serving the Architecture/Engineering/Construction (AEC) community by providing exemplary applications of cutting edge, architectural visualization technologies and to students in the use of these technologies”. IMAGINE Lab will work directly for the Georgia Veteran’s Memorial Park Foundation to provide a realistic 3D visualization of the master plan designed by Breedlove Land Planning.
The newly renovated and expanded Nancy Guinn Memorial Library will officially re-open on May 16, 2010. This facility, located just a few miles down the road from the BLP office, doubles as a community gathering place for Rockdale County. Craig Gaulden Davis Architects designed the building improvements, BLP the site improvements and landscaping, and Potts General Contractors brought it all together.
