Waldon Studio Architects [WSA] was hired to provide full architectural and engineering design-build services for science classroom renovations. The existing building, constructed in 1970, is approximately 236,861 SF. The scope of work included renovations to three science classrooms, two prep rooms and associated corridor work, totaling 7,598 SF. All rooms were completely demolished with exception of the defining masonry walls. As part of the finish upgrades, each room received new ceilings, flooring, epoxy top casework and lab stations as well as new paint. In addition to the finishes, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and technology systems were updated to support the new labs. Each space is a combined classroom/lab area designed with twenty-eight  student workstations and twenty-eight  lab stations. Each lab has a teacher’s demonstration table, serving as one location for the emergency shutdown of power, gas and water to the stations within the room. WSA worked closely, with PGCPS, to select furniture, hardware, finishes and lab equipment consistent with the county requirements.
