The new 176,000 square foot Dover High School was constructed on the nine-acre occupied high school site within five feet of the original 1915 building. Comprised of a three-story academic wing with a 1,000+ seat auditorium, the new school rests in an urban residential neighborhood.
Sands Decker was able to help the Dover City School District obtain a $372,700 Partners in Watershed Management Grant from the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District. The funding provided partial reimbursement of installation costs associated with stormwater Best Management Practices (BMP). The BMP design incorporates underground storage using natural characteristics of the surrounding soils to reduce overall stormwater runoff and to assist in ground water recharge.
