JDBY Girls School Chicago, Illinois
The need for an expansion within this school was necessitated by the rapidly growing number of school-age children in this vibrant Chicago Community. This educational project consists of a two-story addition to an existing religious school. The scope of work included the addition of a new school drop-off, a two story entry lobby, administration area, 12 classrooms for grades 6-8, tutorial rooms, second floor multi-purpose room, computer lab and a library. This project is a first Phase of the School expansion plan, with more classrooms that will be added on the remaining portion of the building. The structure of this project was particularly challenging, since it required adding an additional floor on an existing school Since this is a non-for-profit organization, the project had to stay within the budget and at the same time provide adequate space and inviting entry façade.
