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.

Project Highlights:

  • Specialty pedestrian paving with duke exposed aggregate mix
  • Light broom finish vehicular and pedestrian concrete flatwork
  • Site furnishings, bike racks, statuaries and memorial garden wayfinding
  • Ornamental railings and specialty grating
  • Grading and foundational base construction
  • Fire lane construction
