Summarize the project's program, features and achievements.
After more than 50 years, Boca Raton demolish the original Addison Mizner and unveils the new campus for their students. The schools covers a 122,815 square foot campus which includes 57 classrooms (78 teacher stations): 6 kindergarten, 2 pre-k, 24 primary, 12 intermediate, 16 middle, and 4 self-contained and part-time ESE classrooms. This state-of-the-art building also provides: media centers, including reading room, support spaces, and maker space; science lab; art and music room; skills labs; full-service kitchen and cafeteria; and administrative offices and conference rooms.
Tilt Up has been the go to for schools as they provide a fast paced construction without giving up any of the structural integrity required for housing our children. Some may think, "sure you're fast and strong but are you beautiful?". Our team answered that through rigorous coordination and craftsmanship provided everything our client was looking for. The panels included various architectural features from deep recesses, reveals, faux chimney panels, and many detailed curves in the panel edge forms.
The exterior architecture took a modern take on the influential design of Addison Cairns Mizner, the Palm Beach County architect who serves as the school's namesake. Smooth masonry walls with Spanish colonial-inspired articulation compliment the character of the neighborhood and Boca Raton community. The inner campus has two courtyards: a large green space for student gardens, outdoor learning opportunities and flexible play; and a European-inspired plaza with an art patio, science area, and outdoor dining. One of the main features of the building is the clock tower at the main entry. This recognizable and iconic features comes from the existing Administration building, continuing the life of a 50 year landmark.
