OVERVIEW

 

The Haverford Township School district needed to replace an aging and undersized school building with a new, state-of-the-art elementary school for 700 students.

 

The new building resembles a “V” with the longer northern leg a three story classroom wing and the shorter southern leg containing gym and cafeteria spaces along with two story office and support spaces with six separate and distinct roof elevation levels. The topography and position on the site required the south side of the building to be cut a full story into the side of the hill. The building is a multi-story steel framed structure incorporating strategically located steel moment frames to comprise the building’s lateral force resisting system.

This project provides a full gamut of educational and community space including a central learning circle to support break-out activities, a dedicated life skills suite, a flexible stage arranged to serve both the gym and the cafeteria and an outdoor learning area.
