The Fuqua Orchid House at Atlanta Botanical Garden
Atlanta, Georgia

Client Challenge:

Incorporate stormwater detention pond into the natural surroundings of the exterior gardens of this nationally known facility without creating an eyesore/distraction.

PRIME Solution:

Designed rock lined pool that maintains a minimal pool elevation and limits water fluctuation to 9-inches.  The plant material selected to utilize in this pond would thrive under these conditions.  The result is a stormwater detention pond that is not easily detected by the general public because of the natural setting and incorporation of aquatic vegetation.

Prime Engineering, Inc. provided engineering services for the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s new orchid house facility.  The Botanical Garden expanded the center’s existing facilities. 

The project scope of work included:

  • Existing condition plans
  • Proposed staking plan
  • Proposed grading, drainage, and utility plans

  • Proposed retaining wall elevations
  • Miscellaneous details
