Veterans Memorial Park

Veterans Memorial Park

Dallas, Georgia

 

CROFT provided full architectural, structural, MEP engineering, and construction administration support for the development of a 3,000 person outdoor amphitheater and public park venue in Dallas, GA. This outdoor concert and park facility creatively integrated unused space between the Paulding County government complex and US Highway 278 to provide a passive park facility with amenities to serve residents of all ages.

By converting unused acreage around a large existing facility, the CROFT / Lowe design team developed a park concept that not only minimized the cost of maintenance but allowed the existing parking infrastructure around the government complex to become a 7‐day a week asset to serve the citizens of Paulding County. The facility was designed to support two simultaneous large outdoor events and to take advantage of the extensive road network that supports the government complex to support traffic flow in/out of the park. Dedicated to area veterans, the park is outfitted with patriotic‐themed signage as well as architectural elements reminiscent of historic Paulding County.

Acworth Police Headquarters

Acworth Police Headquarters

Acworth, Georgia
 

To say that the headquarters of the Acworth Police Department (APD) was small and outdated would be grossly understating the challenges the old facility created for department personnel. Since 1995, the APD has served the Acworth community from a converted cabinet shop, whose 5,000 square feet were ill suited for a modern police headquarters. And so, “by the grace of God and the blessing of the taxpayers,” according to Police Chief Wayne Dennard, the department moved into a beautiful new facility, designed by CROFT, and optimized for the staff and the public safety services they provide.

CROFT’s master plan provided a way for the department to meet their needs while staying within budget. The plan included small renovation strategy in lieu of demolition – such as the repurposing of an existing 3,000 square feet cable network building - that reduced the budget by more than $1 million, while still delivering all the features on the department’s wish list.

Cobb Civic Center

Marietta, GA

 

Cobb's Board of Commissioners engaged CROFT to give a complete face-lift to its aging Cobb County Civic Center.  Since its construction in 1972, the Civic Center had been one of the premier venues for high school sports, graduations, craft fairs, art exhibits, gun shows, and Special Olympics activities in metro-Atlanta.  CROFT led the architectural, interior, and engineering design for a $5.7 million expansion and renovation that transformed the Civic Center into a sleek, modern, multi-functional space that will serve Cobb County for generations to come.

CROFT has been selected for several design projects for Cobb County. Our experience shows that their architectural designs are attractive, with nice finishes and attention to detail, while keeping within our established construction budgets. Their cost estimates have been quite accurate, yielding no major surprises when the sealed bids come in.

CROFT conducted a solar energy study and full engineering design for a remote, off-the-grid 36kW solar photo-voltaic power system linked to an existing battery bank and gas powered generator system at the Historic Cades Cove recreation area in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

After a national search by the NPS in Denver, CROFT was selected to lead the technically complex process of integrating a fully off-the-grid solar photovoltaic system as the third power supply element in a legacy battery-bank and gas generator system. After a solar study and load analysis that identified a need for 30% larger system than originally projected, CROFT led the electrical, civil, and landscape architectural design to site the solar array while carefully screening it from historically significant site amenities at the Cable Mill Visitor’s Center.

Located at a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this complex, lean-budget project was enhanced by CROFT's expertise in public involvement and interfacing with SHPO representatives to ensure the historic character of the site is maintained while accommodating the long-term operational demands for life-support amenities at Cades Cove.
