October 08 www. bus- ex. com 75 The Hagerman Group Silver- level certifi cation. Low- water fi xtures will be used in the restrooms, and the building will be heated and cooled with geothermal energy. The structure will also be largely open to daylight, with the idea to give people even inside the building— where interpretive exhibits will be housed and lectures and classes held— the feeling that they are already in the nature park. Other construction elements to the project include an interurban pedestrian bridge crossing that will incorporate old concrete bridge abutments from a railroad crossing into the design and Journeyways designed by The Landscape Studio out of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The work will all be done with an eye toward creating minimal disturbance of the landscape. Large fallen trees that must be moved to make room for construction work will later be placed back in their original locations, for instance. With a $ 6.5 million price tag, the park work is a relatively small project for GDH, which does more than $ 100 million worth of work each year, but the rewards of creating a new public amenity and connecting art and nature have motivated all involved, Forman says. " We've got a team from many different worlds, from art to architecture and landscape design, but we've all been able to communicate and work together to make the project happen." Marlon Blackwell Architect and The Landscape Studio collaborated with IMA in selecting Geupel- DeMars- Hagerman during our design phase. We respect their directness and candor. We admire their willingness to build work to its fullest design intent. Geupel- DeMars- Hagerman's high professional standards have been at the forefront of helping us bring IMA's vision of Art and Nature to reality. The Landscape Studio
