Site Grading & Site Design Vignettes and Multiple Choice

Few hours until test, feeling ok about site design vignette

Postby jwetzel » Fri Feb 02, 2018 9:48 am

After a couple practice runs on both vignettes, starting to feel okay. Grading should be good, site design is a little nerve wracking.

Any critical misses on this attempt? I know I have issues with partial views,shading,wind at the office entry and plaza. Any suggestions other than those? These are minor errors right? This solution took me about 50 minutes

Thanks-
Jesse

Restaurant view of the pond is very poor.
Restaurant has a pedestrian connection to the service entry and a driveway connection to the pedestrian entry.
New coniferous tree at the SE corner of the restaurant serves no purpose.
Why is the restaurant at an odd angle?

Thanks Sparky,

I didn't even realize I flipped the restaurant entries.
Is the view still considered blocked if there are deciduous trees in the way? Or just coniferous?
I wasn't sure if the service entry was totally blocked off from the plaza site line (ignoring that the restaurant is flipped for the moment)
Odd restaurant angle was for pond view, office separation, and avoiding trees.
