Highland Parks Department Gazebo Facility - Highland, IN
NIES Engineering, Inc. provided design and services during construction for improvements to Highland's Main Square Park with subconsultant Carras, Szany, Kuhn & Associates providing architectural services.
The project involved doubling the size of the existing Gazebo, constructing a new toilet/concession stand building, providing new lighting around the entire park, and developing serpentine walkways and a new park entrance. The existing Gazebo concrete basement substructure was retained and expanded and a new Gazebo facility constructed in the same location. Enhanced Gazebo features included completely upgraded electrical service for stage performances, a built-in sound system, doubling the size of the stage platform, new water and sanitary sewer services, restroom upgrades, cedar shake shingles, a rebuilt cupola, and composite wood stairs and railings to reduce future maintenance painting.
The gazebo is now fully ADA compliant with wheelchair ramps for easy access. These improvements were very popular with the Highland Parks Performing Arts Group as they entered their thirtieth year of performances at the gazebo.
The new Restroom / Concession Stand Building featured split face block construction and stainless steel, auto flushing restroom fixtures for men and women. The Project was completed in 2007 at a cost of $950,000.
