AIA SPECIAL CITATION FOR DESIGN, 2009

ASLA HONOR AWARD FROM TRI-STATE ASLA, 2014

The satellite campus for Clemson's International Center for Automotive Research sits on a 250-acre parcel in the Carolina Piedmont region.  SALT was commissioned to design and consult on establishment and management of native meadows for seven acres, and create a broad ecological framework for the entire campus landscape.  Instead of turf grass, a canvas of indigenous plants re-introduces wildlife habitats and minimizes maintenance.  A trio of new basins provide wet habitat, and captures and infiltrates stormwater.  The meadows feature grass-dominant uplands and colorful, diverse wet lowlands.
