Jackson Local Schools
Amherst Elementary and Lake Cable Elementary are "twin" prototype facilities. To bring 5th grade classrooms (800 students) back to the elementary schools, the building square footage was increased by 16,000 sf.
All District personnel were consulted and involved in the development of the educational specifications so that the environment created truly functioned for the people who used it.
The simple, functional design of the original school building and exterior campus structure was maintained while providing a new cafeteria, media center, science labs, and six new classrooms. In order to upgrade the existing 22,000 sf facilities, all new plumbing, mechanical (air conditioning) and lighting systems were installed.
