Canaan Middle School – Jonathan Alder Local Schools
Plain City, Ohio
The Kleingers Group provided schematic planning, design development and construction documents for a new elementary school on a 10-acre site south of Plain City. Kleingers provided overall site planning and design, specifications, submittals, and bidding for each phase of construction. The design included grading, erosion control, and utility work outside of the building envelope, including parking and driveways, and stormwater management. The project site is located within the Big Darby Watershed. This watershed is protected by a special stormwater permit administered by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. The team worked with the OEPA to meet the permit requirements for groundwater recharge by providing bioretention basins throughout the site. A total of six bioretention basins were constructed.
