UGA Ed Hoard Memorial First Tee Golf Tournament

BLP recently participated in the Ed Hoard Golf Tournament, with Matt Tanner and Anna Harrison offering cold beers to golfers, while Gary Caraway and Kyle Webb golfed in the tournament.

UGA Pedestrian Bridge

Breedlove Land Planning is currently assisting the University of Georgia Facilities Maintenance Division with the replacement of a pedestrian bridge off East Campus Road. The pedestrian bridge spans the railway below to serve as a primary connection between South Campus and East Campus, home to the Ramsey Student Center for Physical Activities, the UGA Performing Arts Center, the Georgia Museum of Art, and East Campus Village Housing. Approaching the bridge, you will enter through the newly redesigned gateway plaza. The new plaza features thoughtful delineation between circulation and seating zones, a bio-diverse plant palette and a new home for the “split-screw” sculpture. The pictures above showcase the strategic placement of the prefabricated steel bridge by Banner Industrial Construction.
