Over the Fall of 2012, Breedlove Land Planning worked with Georgia Tech Facilities, Capital Planning and Space Management and Recreation departments to fast track the design and approval of the Roe Stamps Field renovation master plan. This 53 page documents provides guidance for the redevelopment of what is arguably the most heavily used multi-purpose athletic field in the Southeast United States. Since the completion of this master plan, BLP was approved to produce and permit construction documents. With little time to waste, this multimillion dollar site renovation project was been designed, engineered and submitted for permitting. By the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year, we hope to see this project completed. More updates will follow as progress continues!

Duncan Creek Park is an existing active recreation park in the Hamilton Mill area of Gwinnet County, Georgia.
