Bishop George School reached us to design the school field in such a manner so as to give maximum play area to the students of all ages and class. The site was irregular with narrow play area opening into spacious play areas which also served as the spill out area for junior and senior wings.
The site lacked any provision for rainwater or storm water drainage hence the entire site remained flooded during the monsoon season. The site is surrounded by large occupied building with a larger terraces which has a huge surface area to accumulate rainwater.
The entire concept and design was evolved around harvesting the rainwater and taking the opportunity to recharge the aquifers. The rain water reaches to the recharge pit after going through several catch basins and a cleaning chamber. Waste water management was adapted and an underground tank was proposed under the water dispensing area. The waste water thus gets collected and can be used for watering the plants and in cleaning the field.
The materials were recycled and reused within the site. The sustainable building materials were used for the landscape project. Fly ash bricks were readily used in any form of new construction from landscape steps to the water dispensing area. Similarly Mild Steel was opted for building the encasing of the water dispensing area.
The entire design was done by AAA Design Studio, one of the best Architects in Allahabad.
