Akron Children’s Health Center-Boston Heights

Environmental Design Group provided planning and detailed design services for this project which included civil engineering and landscape architecture. The scope also included topographic and utility surveying, traffic engineering, permitting and construction phase services.

The Boston Heights Health Center is Akron Children’s Hospital’s northernmost facility offering pediatric and urgent care as well as rehabilitation and specialty care. The Health Center is located east of SR 8, just north of the Ohio Turnpike. The project site had been vacant since 2005 and presented several challenges ranging from a drainage area that included SR 8, adjacent environmentally sensitive areas to poor subsoils.
