Leschi Elementary School Classroom Addition
A four-classroom addition completed in summer 2022.
About the Project
The two-story four-classroom new addition relieves overcrowding and helps students succeed. The design ties into and blends in with the existing masonry school building.
The new addition is located at the north end of the existing school and includes some new landscaping, bio-filtration, and a new secure bicycle storage area. The existing playground was relocated to allow for construction of the addition.
Changes to the administration area and main entrance created a secure entry vestibule that directs visitors into the office area to increase school safety. The fire alarm system was replaced.
Creating this additional educational space has allowed preschool to return to the school.
