Manhard Consulting was hired by ARCON Associates to provided engineering services for this new middle school located on +/-12-acres in Northbrook, IL.
The new school improvements include new classroom space, state of the art indoor basketball/volleyball gymnasiums and an outdoor soccer field with underlying stormwater detention.
The new school was built while the existing school was still in session and required using temporary detention in the neighboring property owner’s pond.
Logistics played a major role in the building of this new school. The temporary detention plan was unusual but required to have detention based on local requirements. There was no place on site to build a temporary pond and the permanent stormwater volume and storage was to be under the existing school, which could not be demolished until a later date.
