Project Overview

The Crofton Complex redevelops an existing park and sports center into an educational complex with a new high school, middle school, and elementary/special school. The site is adjacent to the existing Crofton Middle School and Linthicum Walks, a historic home and farmhouse. A master plan was developed to add three new schools and their related amenities to the site, while the existing Crofton Middle School will see improvements to their bus loop and parking layout.

The first project designed was the High School. Working with the topography of the site, Crofton High School offers improved student access to outdoor learning opportunities.

Our Approach

Once the ideal placement had been decided, MK designed paving, pedestrian and vehicular traffic patterns, necessary utility upgrades, sediment and erosion control, stormwater management documents, and forest conservation plans.

The Results

MK was an integral part of the design team, as the large site contained some unique amenities to be highlighted. In addition to the athletic fields and historic property, there were some interesting environmental features – including wetlands and a stream – that were incorporated into the site design. With GWWO, we considered a dozen different locations for the high school.

Frederick County Public Schools Blue Heron Elementary School

A new elementary school in Frederick County was created in response to growing population and development in the County. This school required extensive coordination with the developer of the adjacent community.

Mother Seton Academy Mother Seton Academy Gymnasium

By thoughtfully designing and programming a tiny lot, the Mother Seton Academy gained a learning garden, pocket park, and outdoor classroom for their middle school students.


Carroll County Public Schools Career & Technology Center

CCCTC’s site design juggled a number of competing interests – construction phasing, vehicular circulation, and stormwater management. MK created a design that balances all these requirements and more.

Arundel Community Development Services (ACDS) Severn Center

The Severn Center is a project 20 years in the making, a multi-purpose center created for children, youth, families, seniors – a place of community involvement and impact.
