The open space project consists of the common ground shared between the half-billion dollar expansion of Duke University’s medical grounds and the 2.5-acre sustainable campus quadrangle. At the time of construction, the project was the largest medical open space on the East Coast.
Gibson Landscape paid special attention to sustainability, installing heat-reducing tree canopies, green roofs and reducing storm water runoff with rainwater harvesting.
We completed the project without disrupting access to the medical campus, which continued to operate as usual.
