Lake 4, Cummings Research Park West, Huntsville, AL
Cummings Research Park West is the second largest Research Park in the U.S. J&A was selected to design a 24 acre lake, concrete fountain and spillway, as a signature water feature of the Park. The lake also functioned as regional retention basin for a large part of the Park. Project construction required approx 600.000 cy yards of soil excavation. Working with City staff, J&A developed a construction process that saved over $1M in earthwork cost, and generated revenue through the sales of the materials.
