Lee High School Replacement Project
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Forte and Tablada, Inc.has designing the complete 26-acre site for the construction of the new Lee High School as sub-consultant to GraceHebert Architects. The civil/site design included four buildings, multiple drives, parking lots to accommodate all faculty, buses and students, and a public walking trail to increase connectivity with the surrounding community. A stormwater filtration area (dry bottom pond) runs through the middle of the site, inclusive of a bridge and terrace for easier access between buildings. The stormwater filtration area served multiple purposes; minimize the amount of dirtwork due to the elevation differential across the site, treat the stormwater, and to minimize the effects of runoff as a result of the new site. The site was also designed to minimize the removal of existing Live Oak trees. The new school buildings will total approximately 180,000 square feet in size.
