This coordination resulted in a more unified design approach across the State Parks and better coordination between the contractors.
Engineering

The Caesar Creek State Park renovation was primarily a functional fix, rather than a cosmetic one. SHP replaced and enhanced underground branch circuits that allow electric connection for select campgrounds, and modified the existing utility primary service.

"[The SHP designers] are very professional on how they approach a project, interact with local ODNR staff, and all aspects of the project."
– David Kirschner, Project Manager, Ohio Department of Natural Resources
"Due to the site's increased popularity and traction in recent years, Caesar Creek was in major need of a utility overhaul. The engineering and design teams worked diligently to provide the best possible equipment without sacrificing the budget."
– Tom Poff, Electrical Practice Leader, SHP
