The project involved improvements to the Memorial Hall Gateway along Limestone Street as a part of the development of the new law building on the main campus. New paths create a signature walkway aligned with the tower of Memorial Hall and a unified landscape between the Historic Memorial Hall and the new Law Building Plaza.
The landscape combines forms and materials which are common throughout campus and creates intersection seating areas while maintaining the classic open lawn as the foreground for Memorial Hall.
The project installed a new campus bus stop with ample room for student gathering, alleviating safety concerns while waiting for bus service along Limestone Street.
St. Francis High School needed to add athletic spaces to their downtown campus with limited opportunities to expand their building’s footprint.

Our civil engineering work included water and sanitary sewer utilities, as well as grading and storm drainage.
Conecuh Brands contracted with Luckett & Farley to create a distillery and destination experience similar to the ones along Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail for Clyde May’s Alabama Style Whiskey. The expertise of our Corporate Commercial & Hospitality and Distilled Spirits studio are collaborating from site master planning through construction administration to design an attraction that will draw visitors from Alabama and beyond even though a distillery tour might be a foreign concept to them.
Inspired by the legacy of Clyde May, Luckett & Farley has created a vision for an immersive distillery experience by capturing the local tradition and Clyde’s trailblazing ingenuity. The tenets of experience design guided the design process to craft an authentic, one-of-a-kind day for guests, building upon the distillery essentials of a mill, still house, rickhouses, and bottling factory with a restaurant, museum, gift shop, apple orchard, and amphitheater.

The removal and renovation of two major buildings within the scholastic core on Western Kentucky University’s campus were the catalyst for the Hilltop planning study. The study evaluated and assessed the pedestrian and vehicular circulation opportunities associated with the Hilltop, both a defining topographical character of the campus and the WKU scholastic services core. Addressing these building changes, Luckett & Farley developed a plan that will maintain a walkable campus, limit or remove vehicles, reduce traffic congestion and parking demand, minimize pedestrian and vehicular conflicts, and remove parking from the hill rerouted Hilltop Drive.
Camp Restoration is a Veteran’s Club development to form a tiny home community providing transitional housing for homeless vets and services to prepare them for independent living.

The stops were designed with community input to enhance existing high-traffic TARC bus stops. Our design teams developed designs that responded to their context and location.
The project is a comprehensive renovation of the hangar facility, including complete replacement of the building envelope, repair of hangar doors, repair/replacement of deteriorated structural components, structural upgrades to meet current building codes and ATFP requirements, reconfiguration of interior administrative and maintenance areas, complete replacement of interior building finishes and environmental support systems, and replacement of fire protection systems.
Luckett & Farley provided master planning and design services for a 48,664 SF surgical center addition to the Taylor Regional Hospital. The building is designed to appear as a separate facility from the hospital to help ease patients' anxiety. This hospitality focus on the patient allows for individual pre- and post-op rooms that become the patient’s “home base.” Their family wait in these rooms for their loved one to return from the procedure.
Luckett & Farley is providing architecture, engineering, and interior design services for the renovation of Phelps Stokes Chapel, a 20,518 SF, 2-story masonry structure. Originally constructed in 1904, the exterior envelope consists of brick with a stone water table, large ornamental wood windows, wood cornice, eaves, a shingle roof, and a large masonry and wood cupola housing numerous bells.
We prepared the design as a task order under an IDIQ A/E design contract for the 88ABW, Civil Engineering Group at Wright-Patterson AFB. Luckett & Farley was tasked with updating the Human Effectiveness (Human Performance Wing, “HPW”) Master Plan to replace a 2006 pre-BRAC master plan. Updating the plan included documenting space, infrastructure and adjacency requirements of the HPW, and providing concepts for the consolidation of administrative, laboratory, and support functions. HPW functions are currently dispersed in facilities throughout Area B at Wright-Patterson AFB. The facilities vary in degree of physical condition and adequacy to serve the HPW needs. The current conditions create inefficiencies and limit collaboration. Consolidation will facilitate “net-centric” research, improve delivery time, lower costs in developing products, and speed up integration and delivery of training programs.
Louisville Gas and Electric Company and Kentucky Utilities Company retained Luckett & Farley, along with consultant Sigma Planning Group, to assist the Facilities Group in developing a five year master plan. The utility owns or leases 68 properties located within 12 operational areas throughout Kentucky and northern Virginia.
We developed the master plan to assist the Facilities Group in more efficiently and effectively managing its construction and maintenance activities at the facilities. In general, the plan included developing a quantifiable prioritization methodology for directing these activities based upon each facility’s condition. With multiple facilities located within each operational area, part of the outcome of the plan included factors that would allow the utility to determine whether to invest in repairing/upgrading individual facilities within an operational area or relocating all the facilities into a single master facility (consolidation) within that area.
The Jefferson Memorial Forest Tom Wallace Lake Recreation Area, comprises approximately 27 acres of Louisville’s Jefferson Memorial Forest, which holds the distinction of being the largest municipal urban forest in the United States.

Luckett & Farley developed a master plan for Northern New Mexico College in order to capture a long-term vision for the college, looking ahead 10, 20, and even as far as 50 years into the future.
The need for the plan was generated when various sites were being considered for upcoming construction projects like student housing. The resulting plan consists primarily of a land use study with consideration given to current and projected trends in population and enrollment, as well as educational programs and activities.
The initial effort to begin the master plan included verification of the existing conditions, including campus boundaries, contours, existing buildings, paving, parking, roads, walks, and utilities. Additionally, the team identified adjacent properties for future acquisition that will be needed to realize the vision of the master plan and accommodate the projected growth and prosperity of the college.
During the planning process, numerous design issues were explored, including but not limited to the following:
