Project: Botanical Research Institute




Botanical Research Institute of Texas

Location: Forth Worth, Texas

Sherwood collaborated with landscape designer Balmori Associates on the design and construction of an ecologically vibrant and low -ater consumptive landscape for the new Botanical Research Institute of Texas. The completed structure includes a green roof over more than 50% of its area and provides irrigation by treated and reused rainwater captured from site runoff. Site stormwater is treated through a series of rain gardens before it is collected in a naturalized wet pond for use as irrigation make-up water. Sherwood performed oversight and review of the civil engineering components of the site design and made recommendations to the team for water reuse, stormwater management, ecological integration, and sustainable materials during the design phase of the project.
