The end of Schematic Design...

After several sessions with the design group, and a public meeting, the design was advanced. These concepts are shown in the Site and Building slides below. This concept will be explored further in the Design Development phase.

Round Two...

Based on feedback from the design committee, the design team returned to the group with variations of Scheme "B". The group reviewed these in depth, and it was decided that Schemes "B-2" and B-5" should be carried forward to the next round.

First Pass...

The design team collected the requirements for space sizes and configurations. They then went back to the drawing board and came up with 4 schemes for the group to review. Below are a series of graphics showing those in perspective and plan views. Scheme "B" was selected as the best solution.

Schematic Design

The feedback from teachers, principals, administration, and public groups led to the conclusion that the school building should be located on the southeast corner of the site. The design team set out to explore the various options for this solution.
