2011 Excellence in School Building and Design Honor Award
Cummings & McCrady served as the local architect on the project design team for the 97,000 sf new construction 800 student elementary school located in Mt Pleasant, SC. The building’s angular layout resulted from unusual site constraints that included retention of majestic live oaks, adjacency to an existing municipal athletic complex, and setbacks from existing utility lines. The resulting form and building character provide an inviting brick facade that compliments the neighborhood, maximizing usage of existing amenities, and shares parking with the adjacent office building to limit the overall impact and provide an economical solution.
This successful project earned a 2011 Excellence in School Building and Design HONOR AWARD by the South Carolina Chapter of the Council of Educational Facility Planners International (SC CEFPI).
As local architectural liaison, Cummings & McCrady provided full services during the CA phase of the project.
