Bancroft School Replacement Campus

New Campus Serves the Extraordinary Needs of Special Education Students, Their Families, and the Region’s Special Needs Community
Mount Laurel, New Jersey



We supported the Bancroft School with selecting and then developing an appropriate site for a new 80-acre campus. The campus was designed to provide students and those residing on campus the opportunity for expanded socialization and recreation opportunities, as well as educational enrichment. Following site selection, we were responsible for full land development services, including survey, landscape architecture, including lighting design, and site/civil, geotechnical, environmental, and traffic engineering. The design actualizes Bancroft's vision to provide opportunities for exploration and community interaction outdoor walking paths of various scales; locations for play, including sports fields and playgrounds; and garden areas that focus on bringing nature into the everyday interaction of the children in the school. We studied how the students would use the space and designed secure areas that provide a safe environment without feeling constrained or confining. Hardscape and landscape materials and plantings were carefully selected to keep users safe.
