Challenge: To accommodate a growing school and provide necessary updates to the existing building.

SVPA Solution: SVPA Architects provided an addition and renovation to the Jordan Creek Elementary School. This included an addition of two kindergarten classrooms and two multi-occupant restrooms. Work within the existing building included the installation of new walls and doors at several existing classroom entrances and the replacement of HVAC equipment and controls, lighting with high-efficiency LED fixtures, a paging/bell system, a new clock system with wireless clocks and fire alarms with an addressable system. In addition, special programs classrooms were remodeled, including the creation of one larger preschool room from two existing classrooms and the relocation of an existing single-occupant restroom. Finish upgrades included new millwork, ceilings and flooring throughout the existing building. Site work included additional parking to the east and south of the existing parking lot, new site lighting and installation of a new grease interceptor.
