    Current Project Phase: Design Development

    • Further development of school’s program elements such as classrooms, offices, commons spaces, etc., are guided by district educational specifications, technical standards, and input from building principal, teachers, and facilities staff members.
    • Selection of building materials and finishes palette — masonry, exterior metal siding, paint and other wall finishes, flooring, and cabinetry — begins.
    • Structural design; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) ductwork and piping; and electrical conduit designs are developed.
    • Design continues to evolve so that educational spaces, support spaces, and public spaces meet the program and technical requirements set by the district and so that the building support systems function well within the building spaces supported.
    • The architect prepares more detailed drawings and other documents to describe the size and character of the entire project.
