School Administrative Offices
Gross Size of Project:
- Architectural Excellence
St. John’s School was preparing embark on their new Campus Center Project. The 10-year project would displace administrative offices and significantly disrupt the flow of student arrival and departure. They needed an administrative building, additional parking and student drop-off zones to ease the transition and maintain school operations during construction. Timing was tight. The school swing space had to be operational before the start of the school year in just a couple months.
Requirements included a functional floor plan similar to their existing office. It would also need to meet specific natural light requirements for each office.
ModSpace designed and built a relocatable modular facility that met all of the customer’s requirements. The finished J-shaped structure includes a courtyard for the staff, similar to the one at the main campus. Large windows were also added to increase natural light throughout. And well-planned drop-off zones improve the flow of traffic in and
- Technical Innovation & Sustainability
The relocatable building added flexibility to the master planning effort. The school can add, remove and reconfigure building sections as needed to meet future needs of the staff. This flexibility allowed school administrators to move quickly to approve building plans and meet their immediate needs.
- Cost Effectiveness
ModSpace was asked to be the single point of contact for all construction activity around the swing space building and site improvements. The ModSpace Design Team quickly developed two distinct floor plans and five site plans. The options were overlaid on aerial photography, including parcel lines and utility information from local GIS systems.
The customer immediately realized the speed and value of a modular approach from a single point of contact and the building plan was quickly finalized. The school engaged ModSpace to design the complete solution, including all site improvements. ModSpace designed, constructed and installed the buildings and completed all site improvements before the start of the school year.
