St. Paul’s Episcopal Day School was founded in 1963 by Clifford E. Nobes, a former rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church who recognized the value in superior academic curriculum and an interactive learning environment.
McCownGordon was selected largely due to their success with similar projects and teamed up with Gould Evans Architecture, to take an integral step in renovating a school that means so much to the community. The renovations enhance the learning facilities the children have access too and ensure a healthy environment for them to learn.
Being a school project, scheduling was a major challenge the team had to face. But they stuck to their tight schedule and replaced their roof top units within a matter of weeks to keep the project moving along. To avoid disturbing students’ education, both phases were completed during the summer months.
The multi-phased remodel included fixing infrastructure needs and installing a new sprinkler system throughout the project. Construction brought several new classrooms and breakout rooms to the 50,000 square-foot facility, giving the students access to an enhanced learning environment. Renovations also included a new lobby and store front, with open access and all new hardware.
