A $7 million renovation affected almost the entirety of this 101,778 sf elementary school in some fashion. From new paint and ceilings throughout, to a boiler room addition, MEP upgrades and more; the complexity of the project and MartinRiley’s history with the school district* led to a strategic alignment of MartinRiley with lead architect for the project, MKSTD. MartinRiley provided architectural and engineering services for the portion of the scope outlined below:
- Exterior masonry repairs
- Roof replacement/repairs
- Curtain wall replacement on 1961 addition
- Renovation and upgrades to domestic water system
- ADA Upgrades: modification of all stair / ramp guardrails and handrails; modification / renovation of restrooms for accessibility; modification of auditorium for accessibility
*MartinRiley maintains a longstanding relationship with Fort Wayne Community Schools (FWCS), particularly through the firms’ work on more than 50 Building Envelope projects (masonry and curtain wall restorations and replacements, yearly roof audits, and yearly roof repair and replacement projects), along with years of ADA assessments and upgrades—touching nearly every location in the 52-school district. In addition, MartinRiley’s specialty in historic preservation lent invaluable expertise in a renovation where the two oldest portions of the building date back to the early 1920’s.
