UAB SCHOOL of NURSING EXTERIOR IMPROVEMENTS

The University of Alabama at Birmingham
Birmingham, Alabama
 
General Description
Sherlock, Smith & Adams was commissioned by the University of Alabama at Birmingham to improve the streetscape and building entry plaza along University Boulevard at the UAB School of Nursing. Maintenance issues were eliminated at the main building entry by increasing drainage and removing deteriorating concrete topping. Concrete pavers were added to the pedestrian walks and building entries.
 
Features
The streetscape and plaza were updated to match University standard design elements and to strengthen the unified campus appearance. Existing plant materials were replaced with new landscaping to further coordinate with the surrounding campus. An elevated walkway was constructed to link the two building entries and create a path to Unity Park away from University Boulevard. Brick seat walls were added at the elevated walk to provide gathering spaces.
