  • Master Site Planning and Design
  • Stormwater Management
  • Master Drainage Report
  • Offsite Infrastructure Improvements
  • Construction Administration


Located in the heart of a higher-end residential community, this church and school campus required extensive coordination with the neighborhood and a design that accommodated the community’s comments. In addition, the project site is located in a master planned drainage area, so the team also needed to incorporate the existing drainage system into the site design and maintain the integrity of the system as much as possible.

The project includes the church campus Saint Bernadette Catholic Church and Pope John XXIII Elementary School, along with athletic fields for the school. Offsite utility infrastructure expansion and additional parking was needed to accommodate the school campus built in phase II.
