Wayne County Community College District Downtown Campus Site and Landscape Modernization Project

Detroit, Michigan

PEA Group provided Wayne County Community College District Downtown Campus (WCCCD) with an in-depth visual analysis of the existing site conditions and use of the property. Our team prepared a graphic report that diagrams the strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities of the existing site, to include:

  • “Wow” factor assessment
  • Indoor | outdoor relationships
  • Impact of below-grade utilities | site features
  • “Greening” opportunities
  • Wayfinding, service functionality
  • Parking capacity needs and student-staff co-mingling
  • Gathering and multi-purpose event space opportunities

After receiving input on the guidelines, we prepared several concept sketches to convey options for campus improvement based on the site analysis. A final conceptual master plan and cost opinion illustrated the following proposed improvements:

  • New pedestrian plaza
  • Outdoor amenities
  • Landscaping
  • Signage
  • Site furnishings
  • Other features intended to improve the outdoor campus space
