)-- Harvard Jolly Architecture was selected by The School District of Palm Beach County to design the modernization of North Palm Beach Elementary School.
This $21.4 million modernization project will include the design and construction of a new two-story building and the remodeling and renovation of two existing buildings on the 10-acre campus, which originally opened in 1958. Scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2014, the school will house 753 student stations, will incorporate the latest in instructional technology and will be designed to achieve LEED Silver Certification.
North Palm Beach Elementary School is home to the Resonance Instrumental Music Choice Program which introduces music education to students from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade using a number of instruments including violins, cellos, percussion and brass instruments.
Harvard Jolly has provided architectural services for more than 4.5 million square feet of elementary school spaces throughout Florida. The firm’s history with The School District of Palm Beach County includes the modernization of Hagen Road Elementary School in Boynton Beach as well as several addition and renovation projects in Lake Worth, Delray Beach, Boca Raton and Belle Glade.
“We are excited to partner again with The School District on such an important project,” said Yvette London, AIA, LEED AP, director of Harvard Jolly’s Ft. Lauderdale office. “This is a wonderful opportunity to design a facility that respects the needs of this elementary school’s extraordinary music program, its students, staff and the entire North Palm Beach community.”
