TERRA developed the new headquarters for Christy Webber Landscape, located at 457 N. Sacramento Boulevard in Chicago. The site is located adjacent to the Chicago Department of Environment’s Center for Green Technology. The scope of this project included a 10,000-square-foot shop and 7,000-square-foot attached office, storage yard and parking lot.

Services included landscape design, storm water management, detention calculation, utility connection, permitting and dimension control plan.

This project was designed to meet the platinum rating of the LEED Green Building Rating System. Innovative pavement and storm water management practices were used in this project. A granular pavement technique that consisted of gravel material sprayed with soybean soapstock dust control material was used for the storage yard. The use of this technique helped reduce the runoff from the site.
