RHI is thrilled to announce that we were awarded a Merit Award for Social Impact as part of the Potomac ASLA awards ceremony for our work on the University of Virginia West Lawn! For the project, RHI was commissioned to create barrier-free connections across The Lawn. Exhaustive stakeholder consultation and numerous design alternatives ultimately resulted in the installation of two permanent brick ramps on The Lawn’s west side. Through the detailed study, RHI was able to a precedent for inclusion and equity at historic sites.
