A large-scale renovation to the historic buildings of an urban elementary and middle school campus, to improve access, safety, aesthetics, and energy efficiency
A major component of this school renovation project was in meeting federal ADA requirements for accessibility. This included the installation of a new elevator within the Edmunds Elementary School building, which provided an added challenge to a compressed summer renovation schedule. Additional access improvements included the removal and replacement of existing stair systems, as well as upgrades to the south and east entrances for improved pedestrian access.
Renovations to the Edmunds Middle School building included the complete demolition and full fit-up of approximately 5,500 SF of classrooms and common space. These new facilities were constructed with improved energy efficiency, air quality, life safety systems, and improved aesthetics.
