This project consisted of the construction of a new 4,300SF wood-framed building at Greer Elementary School. The classroom is the first of its kind for the San Juan Unified School District under Project JOE (Jump On Education) as a part of their new 21st Century learning environment. Project JOE provides an alternative to the modular classroom, allowing the district to standardize its own design and building modular to be used throughout the district, allowing for faster construction with improved cost controls. The building contains three classrooms and a library/media resource center. Each classroom has an open plan, operable partitions between spaces, high ceilings with abundant windows and skylights, roll-up garage doors to the outdoors and plenty of writing surfaces, flat screen monitors and wireless connectivity. As part of a greater focus on an indoor-outdoor learning experience, the newly landscaped courtyard provides space for outdoor teaching.
