THE FULL STORY

FDG provided architectural services for a new 81,000 SF elementary school. The school is a site adaptation of our Sue Reynolds Elementary School. Situated on the Fort Gordon Army Base and completed in Summer of 2002, this facility accommodates 625 students and includes 41 instructional units, a library and a gymnasium / cafeteria / auditorium.

The Administration is centrally located as the hub of the three academic houses to allow easy accessibility to and supervision of all classrooms. The Media Center is located in a self-contained wing that can be used by the community after-hours. It features natural lighting throughout the media center and offers students two small study rooms, a reading area and a media production room. The media center has high visibility from the student circulation routes and the school’s entrance. The gymnasium / cafeteria / auditorium and their support spaces are located for public access after school hours and isolates these noisy areas away from the instructional spaces. Areas can be zoned off both mechanically and physically restricting access to the rest of the school.
