Star of Bethlehem School
Star of Bethlehem School is located in New Berlin, WI. The school was experiencing continuous enrollment growth and required additional classrooms to accommodate such growth. Their site was restricting in size when it came to building an addition, so they turned to Excel for a solution.
Our team did what we do best, create spatial solutions for both people and place. Excel provided master planning services to demonstrate how the site could be optimized for current and future growth. Due to the size constraints of the site, we selected a 3 level building addition that contained an additional 12 classrooms. This design would also allow for an additional level to be added in the future, which would add 4 more classrooms. This design not only met the school's needs from a spatial standpoint but from an operating side as well. With this selected design, the school would continue to run as normal with no interference from construction.
To achieve the goal of creating additional classrooms under tight site constraints, multiple groups at Excel came together to form a plan. For this project, Excel's Architecture, Surveying, Structural, and Civil services collaborated to provide a solution.
