Project Description

As a 15-year-old scout on summer vacation, I oversaw the design and construction of a French drainage system to eliminate wet and slippery surfaces along the parking lot and sidewalk adjacent to the United Cerebral Palsy’s greenhouse facility. The non-profit organization uses the facility to help those with developmental and acquired disabilities to enhance their everyday lives. Patients often slipped and hurt themselves because of the flooding. I consulted with plumbers, procured equipment and supplies, and brokered donations to fund the project, leading to a viable solution that eliminated the safety hazard at the facility.
