The building site consists of 4.25 acres of previously undeveloped land in
Orland Park, Illinois. The area is zoned as office/
Improvements for road, utilities, sewer, and water detention were required within and adjacent to the property boundaries. Grading was completed to facilitate the controlled flow of water into a dry bottom detention area. Earth swales provide additional drainage when needed. A crushed-rock walking path around the detention area provides an outdoor exercise area.
Informational signs located throughout the building site identify trees and plantings, lighting, and green space and note their environmental significance.
