The completion of the middle school facility on Savannah Christian’s Chatham Parkway campus has fulfilled the long stated goal of a unified Savannah Christian Preparatory School. This renovation and expansion of a two story, 17,572 SF building incorporated offices, classrooms, study spaces, and science labs for 6th, 7th, & 8th grades. Design began in September 2016, with construction completed in July 2017 — in time for the new academic year. The existing structure required total renovation and was doubled from 8,500SF to 17,000SF to house 9 core Classrooms and 3 Science Labs with support spaces. Contending with 9’-0” floor-to-floor constraints in the existing structure, building systems were carefully integrated by the use of soffits and chases. Provisions were made during design for future expansion as well.
