JSD provided engineering services for the relocation of the synthetic turf of the Green Bay Packer's Ray Nitschke practice field. The synthetic turf football field is being donated to Journey House by the Green Bay Packers and being installed in Mitchell Park in the City of Milwaukee through a cooperative agreement with the Milwaukee County Park System. The field will serve as the home field for the Journey House Youth Football and Cheerleading Program and League. This league serves over 500 youth, ages 6-14, representing a cross-section of ethically-diverse, low-income kids from Milwaukee's inner city. Started in 2005, the Journey House Football Program was designed to provide a safe, fun and competitive activity for youth. The program accomplished a milestone this past season with all three Journey House Packer's teams winning their respective division level championships. Established in 1969, Journey House is grounded in the philosophy that "Education is a Family Journey". They embody this belief through their mission of working with the community utilizing a self-help philosophy in order to increase education, reduce unemployment and crime, strengthen families, and revitalize neighborhoods.

JSD conducted a regional, community, and site analysis highlighting three selected locations to replace a pedestrian-bicycle bridge that had been destroyed by flood stage levels of the Sugar River in Belleville, Wisconsin.
JSD detailed plan concepts for each location while providing cost analysis and comparative advantages for each design solution. Hydrological engineering and flood modeling were utilized in providing conceptual design solutions. Detailed design and manufacturer analysis included studies in steel truss and I-beam alternatives, structural support systems, materials, finishes, architectural aesthetics, and installation techniques. These studies provided the necessary information in allowing JSD to create a set of photo-realistic rendering visualizations for each alternative that allowed the Village to make informed decisions on cost, maintenance, style, and aesthetics.
In the Spring of 2012, JSD provided stuctural and civil engineering plans for the reconstruction of the Village approved and recommended pedestrian bridge design. In combination with these efforts, JSD provided planning assistance to the Village's applications for County funding grants. JSD also served as the liaison to the permitting process with the Department of Natural Resources.
