Albany School District

Albany, OR

Lafayette Elementary School in Albany, Oregon required an extension of their existing building to house their growing student population. This large custom structure features six classrooms, a girl’s washroom, a boy’s washroom, a staff gender neutral washroom, a staff workroom, and a large open multipurpose room for group activities. The high efficiency gas mechanical system was placed in the attic to add to the aesthetics, furthering the look of a permanent structure. This building was designed to match the exterior of their existing school and includes a covered connecting walkway to seamlessly move between the existing school and the new, modular addition.

The school district required the classrooms to be fully operational before the start of the 2017 school year and initially looked into traditional methods of construction before deciding on modular construction. The client decided to go modular was due to the tight construction window. The 10,000 square feet of quality educational space was completed in fewer than eight weeks on-site and welcomed the students and faculty in time for the 2017-2018 school year.
