Master Planning and Design for New Two-Story Private Educational Complex

Client: Urban Community School

Scope: Master Planning & 70,000 SF School

Construction Cost: $10,000,000

Completion Date: August 2005

This project consisted of a new two-story private educational complex for pre-kindergarten through 8th grade students. KAI programmed the school and then prepared a Master Plan for the site which included the future expansion of the classroom wing. Ultimately the school will accommodate an enrollment of 600 students.  

One of the great challenges KAI eagerly accepted was to design a contemporary structure to complement and respect the historical surroundings. The design was approved and embraced by the Landmarks and local design review commissions.

Our ongoing involvement as the School Architect for Walsh Jesuit High School has dated back to the early 1990s. Our original scope of work for the school was to develop a comprehensive, twenty-year Master Plan for the renovation and expansion of the campus. Over the past twenty-five years, the feasibility of each potential project was evaluated and the Master Plan was constantly updated according to the needs of the school.
