These plazas play a critical role in the experience of the Cathedral’s visitors, and to the urban life playing out in the city around it.
Parra & Co provided Site Civil and Utility Plans for this project. Given that the project is in downtown Laredo, we worked with the City to determine where should the right connections be. Civil Engineering was completed in 2020 and the construction was finalized in 2021.
