St. Lorenzo Ruiz Middle School is another testament to the strength of collaborative delivery in shaping the built environment of our communities.
While the narrow site dictated the overall massing of the facility, ambitious programming and pleasing architectural features arose to create this mid-century modern look with pops of colour.
Among other benefits, the heightened level of collaboration (using the Integrated Project Delivery method) enabled the design + production team to align costs with the owner’s allowable cost.
Sustainable initiatives were implemented in a variety of ways, including:
- Passive design strategies
- HVAC efficiencies
- Large roof-mounted solar array with enough panels to power the school on sunny days
