The Rock Hill Local Schools project consisted of a new high school and a new 900 student elementary school constructed on about 75 acres of steep terrain with underlying rock and shale. Portions of the site had existing deep coal mine tunnels, the extent of which was not known.
Sands Decker provided complete civil engineering services such as schematic design, design development, and construction document preparation including site dimension plan, site grading plan, storm sewers, wastewater treatment plant, and erosion and sediment control.
The high school and elementary school site was the largest school site development project in the history of the state of Ohio. Over 700,000 cubic yards of earth and rock were moved, and the site development cost within our scope was in excess of $5 million dollars.
