Clemson University South Ravenel Master Plan

HGOR was engaged to create a master plan for the recreational use of a 31-acre parcel of Clemson’s campus known as South Ravanel. Through several days of workshops, HGOR worked to provide direction as well as a set of assumptions to advance the planning and direction. '

The guiding principles of this master plan was to sensitively guide development to ensure a proper balance of natural parkland beauty, appropriately scaled and functional structures, and plan for critical infrastructure and long term sustainability.

The master plan was then dissected into construction projects for phased implementation. The planning efforts quickly adopted Clemson University’s history as a “campus on a lake” into a future as a “campus with a lake running through it.”
