SEBA Park All-Inclusive Playground
The Village of South Elgin wanted to provide an all-inclusive, fully-accessible playground while staying within a strict budget. HLR donated engineering services to help make this important addition to the community a reality.
Our team prepared plans and specification for this $1.3 million project while meeting all stormwater management, compensatory storage, and erosion and sediment control requirements. We also assisted with permit coordination as well as construction layout. Monthly progress meetings between the Village of South Elgin and the project architect were conducted to discuss design requirements, changes and budgetary updates, and project issues and solutions.
The park received recognition by winning the Illinois Parks & Recreation Association’s 2015 Outstanding Facility & Park Award. Everyone at HLR is so proud of this inclusive addition to the community, and we were honored to have been a part of it.
