Works / K-12 Schools Arata Creek School / Troutdale, Oregon


GreenWorks developed site design concepts and construction documents for this day treatment facility for youths with severe emotional and social development difficulties. The landscape reflects the pastoral and agrarian setting for the center and helps to integrate the building into the site. Opportunities for on site treatment of stormwater run off were incorporated into the site development and included bioswales, wet ponds, and a terraced filter strip. GreenWorks also designed a drainage collection swale to resemble a natural meandering stream.
