An expert in educational spaces and environments for individuals with special needs, MSA was a perfect match for this project that needed space quickly. Utilizing strategies to create better early childhood classrooms, such as direct connections to the exterior, increased daylight and views, and improved ventilation and controls - these spaces are the envy of every teacher.

An innovative 'floorless' modular technique was utilized to offer many advantages. It allowed a connection to the existing building and the exterior without stairs and ramps. It also minimized the construction time on site, reducing the impact to the existing program. Building geometry, overhangs, minimizing east and west glazing, as well as individual controls and zoning will improve indoor comfort and save energy.
