Morgan Elementary School Renovations

Palmyra, IN

The project consisted of demolition of several antiquated areas of the existing building, complete renovation of the remaining areas, and several new additions. Portions of the building remained occupied at all times, resulting in a complex construction phasing plan spanning two years.

A new curved classroom wing with sunshade louvers and an administration area was constructed first to relocate students and staff. The existing classrooms and media center were renovated during the summers. The next construction phase included a kitchen, cafeteria, and performance platform, as well as special needs and counseling services classrooms. At this same time, a new main building entrance was constructed, providing enhanced security and an abundance of daylight. The final construction phase included renovation of the existing gymnasium, as well as support spaces and additional classrooms.

A new vibrant color scheme was introduced throughout the building, personified by the whimsical terrazzo patterns throughout the corridors and cafeteria. Plumbing, mechanical, electrical, and technology systems were upgraded throughout the entire building. Exterior improvements included masonry seat walls and landscaping throughout the site.
