Harborview Research and Training Facility
The University of Washington Harborview Research and Training Facility is located at the Harborview Medical Center (HMC) complex on First Hill in downtown Seattle. Being an off-campus facility, Osborn Pacific Group designed the site landscape to be consistent and compatible with the surrounding HMC site design features. Critical design issues included pedestrian safety in a local neighborhood which has a history of criminal activity, microclimate conditions which cause extreme winds and cold spots, and barrier-free accessibility. Work included the preparation of the technical program for site development and landscaping, site planning, schematic landscape design, pedestrian amenities, lighting, and plant selection.
WWU Environmental Research and Education Center
Osborn Pacific Group Inc. was selected to prepare a site master plan and Phase I facility design for a new aquatic toxicology facility for Huxley College. The site is situated off-campus on a 23-acre parcel which included a former dairy farm and stream. The master plan called for the development to accommodate new offices and laboratories, as well as a source pond for ecological research. The first phase of construction development included the design and construction of an aquatic toxicology laboratory, the first in a series of new buildings on the site. As prime consultant, Osborn Pacific Group Inc. prepared construction documents and provided construction support services. In addition to architecture and civil site design, Osborn Pacific Group completed the design for landscape planting, hardscape, and site furnishings.
Bothell High School
Osborn Pacific Group’s landscape design for the athletic field improvement project was truly an exercise in school spirit. A master plant palette was compiled based on drought-tolerance and low-maintenance characteristics as well as the seasonal color and blooming schedule. The resulting sustainable planting scheme highlights the school’s colors of blue and white.
Corrections settings have a unique set of circumstances and constraints. Differing security levels within the same facility determine the level of landscape complexity that can occur. Usually, open spaces at prisons and jails are stark and bleak and often consist of large expanses of lawn. Osborn Pacific Group seeks to identify opportunities to provide landscapes that serve multiple functions from addressing onsite stormwater and improving habitat function to helping reduce stress among officers and inmates. Introducing low-height landscapes in areas physically inaccessible to inmates provides better functionality in terms of reducing irrigation and maintenance requirements and addressing stormwater than is possible with mown lawns.
