Hendrix College

For more than a decade, Crafton Tull provided Landscape Architecture services to Hendrix College. The first project was the detailing of two fountains in the center of the campus. We provided construction documents for fountain layout, plumbing and lights, paving design, area lighting, landscape, and irrigation. Construction administration was also provided to direct, inspect and approve the final installation of both fountains. The upper fountain is a reconstructed reflecting pool that received new surfacing, vertical spray jets and a rock cap that doubles as a seat wall. The lower curved fountain utilizes boulders to cascade water through the turtle rock to the lower trough. This feature transitions the grades from the upper plaza to the less formal lower courtyard. Numerous landscape and irrigation plans for new campus facilities were prepared over the decade of campus work. The most recent completion was the Landscape Architectural work on the new Student Life and Technology Center; a LEED Gold project, that opened in January 2010. The use of native and adaptive plantings that envelop the building and drip irrigation for water efficiency compliments the brick facades of this state of the art technology center. The sustainable landscape, coupled with energy efficiency techniques and eco-friendly architectural design helped Hendrix College achieve its first LEED Gold status.
