Indiantown Gap Cemetery Design

Carter van Dyke Associates was retained by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the National Cemetery Administration to design a 15,000 grave expansion to the existing cemetery. The concept of the site design was to develop a series of one to two acre forest rooms for burial areas. The burial areas are interconnected with a curvilinear road system. The curvilinear road system was bordered with a modular concrete pavers/flush curb.
 
The purpose of the border was twofold; one to protect the road edge from the cemetery maintenance equipment and two, to keep cemetery visitors from driving on the grass.The project included the construction of a new farm vernacular Restroom building which matches the architecture of the Administration Building. The restroom building plan, bench, and yard hydrant and granite section marker have been used in other National Cemeteries.
