    Community Forge Outdoor Space Rehabilitation Project

    Engineers Without Borders Pittsburgh Professional Chapter is partnering with Community Forge in Wilkinsburg to redesign the outdoor space of their building. Community Forge is a community center dedicated to supporting Wilkinsburg by cultivating arts, civic engagement, athletics, education, and mission-driven small business. The current playground area is in disrepair with cracked pavement, a failing retaining wall, and drainage concerns. Community Forge would like EWB Pittsburgh to assist in rehabilitating the existing outdoor lot to create a safe, kid-friendly space for the local community to use.

    EWB Pittsburgh is looking for volunteers to help in the planning and design of this new space. We are particularly looking for volunteers with experience in pavement design, site grading and drainage plans, and retaining wall design but anyone who would like to help out is welcome to join the project.

    If you are interested or want more information please contact Nicole Mee and Katrina Weinmann at wilkinsburg@ewb-pitt.org
