Edgar Road Elementary School Addition


This project consisted of an 8,000 SF masonry back up and brick veneer structure, with steel trusses and a nailable roof deck. This allowed shingles to be applied, which allowed the project to match the similar appearance of the existing school. The building was an addition to the Edgar Road Elementary School, serving as a new multi-purpose room with two additional bathrooms, storage and office space. In addition, the existing school required the conversion of the existing gymnasium space into a new library area with a computer lab. The goal was to fast track the project and start in the summer to get the site work and the main structural elements completed. There were several trees surrounding the school and a tree protection and preservation plan was required. The project was completed on time and the result has met and exceeded the expectations of the school district.
