Southview Elementary School is undergoing an addition and renovation which will dramatically change the school. A 17,500 square foot, L-shaped addition to the 22,000 square foot school will add fourteen new classrooms, several new restrooms, enclose a courtyard, expand the kitchen, and create a new secure entry for the school. New flooring, paint, and casework throughout the existing school will encourage a seamless transition from the old to the new. Colored tile down the corridors will help with wayfinding.
Due to a tight design and construction schedule, SDS Architects teamed with Market & Johnson as a construction manager to break ground before the final construction documents were complete. Design for the project began in December of 2013 and the facility opened for the 2014-2015 academic year.
