Experience + Details

As with all of ORA facilities, the design, finishes and specifications needed to reflect the schools’ commitment to excellence, quality, and sustainability. The building is framed with high recycled content steel with cementitious sub-floors poured on-site. Ceramic and quarry tile wainscot clads the walls in hallways and classrooms with full-height ceramic tiling in the restrooms. A reflective white “cool roof” membrane covers the roof and improves energy efficiency.
