Project Details

Heketi School

Civic Builders teamed up with KSS to transform a former manufacturing site into a vibrant new home for a K-5 school. Through a thorough assessment of the former industrial building’s assets and systems, KSS developed a new plan to capitalize on the building’s wide open, loft-like spaces on the upper two floors and open up the ground floor by removing walls and adding windows. The enlivened ground floor is home to administrative offices, a multipurpose room, and art room. Kindergarten and grades 2 and 3 occupy the second floor, and grades 3, 4 and 5 be on the third floor.
