Project Overview

A small, blighted space included two run down basketball courts and a small pool, enclosed by a 10-foot high fence and covered in an acre of broken asphalt. Community efforts completely transformed the park, creating a fully accessible park with grassy playing fields, landscaped amphitheater, and walking paths.

Our Approach

Two new basketball courts were created and the renovated swimming pool overlooks a new water play area with splashpad. The lively new park restores a natural landscape, integrates green infrastructure, and introduces stormwater management techniques. MK supported the civil engineering efforts of this design.

Anne Arundel County Public Schools Crofton Complex

Our civil engineering services were instrumental in the multi-facility campus of the Crofton Complex Master Plan and high school. The 154-acre site design highlights the site's unique amenities, including wetlands and a stream.


Baltimore City Public Schools / Maryland Stadium Authority Fairmount-Harford

From cost estimating during the feasibility study to the civil engineering of the site to the proactive advocacy for the development of a IART credit bank with MDE, this project is an example of MK’s commitment to our clients.


Community College of Baltimore County Center For Health Professions

CCBC's newest building will house all health-related academic programs. MK provided cost estimating support on this project from the very beginning, through the decision to demolish the existing damaged building and use the opportunity to unite the entire Health Professions program.


Baltimore City Schools / Maryland Stadium Authority Forest Park High School

This High School design beautifully transforms an outdated building into a modern learning environment.
