A mere seven years after opening its doors, Meeting Street Academy (MSA) is in need of a renovation and addition to meet the high demand of their unique offerings. MSA provides educational opportunities for young children regardless of geographic or socioeconomic status and draws upon the best practices from innovative schools across the country. To kick off a new academic year, students and faculty are welcomed back to a larger school with major curbside appeal. The completed expansion offers new classrooms and behind the school, a state of the art turf playground– sure to keep the students waiting for that recess bell to ring.

The two-story addition creates classroom and administrative space for the not-for-profit private institution. The 17,600-SF structure has steel framing supported by a hybrid mat and slab-on-grade foundation system. Non-load bearing metal stud walls are wrapped in a masonry veneer and topped with an SBS modified bitumen roof system. Abuse-resistant gypsum board walls and acoustical ceilings are installed throughout the space, with resilient sheet flooring in the administrative areas and carpet tile floors in the classroom spaces.

Site work for this project includes surface parking, site lighting and utility installation. The campus receives an extended turf playground and basketball court, along with landscape and concrete hardscape.
