LAKE CENTRAL SC Protsman Elementary

AT A GLANCE: Location: Dyer, IN Size: 124,000 s.f. Cost: $27,000,000 Type: New Facility Services: Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Interiors, Civil, Landscape Architecture, Technology

Protsman Elementary was built to replace an outdated, inefficient, and overcrowded school. The new building was constructed on the former building’s site, while the original school continued to operate. Careful phasing and staging were key to the success of the project. The new facility serves 700 students in Kindergarten through 4th grade with a highly efficient mechanical system and wireless Internet access throughout. With a large cafeteria that can expand into the multipurpose room and full size gym, Protsman serves as a neighborhood and community center, as well as an optimum educational space for the future.

Carey Ridge Elementary

AT A GLANCE: Location: Carey Ridge, IN Size: 113,800 sq. ft. (full building) Cost: $2,700,000 Type: Addition, Renovation Services: Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Interiors

A new entrance to the elementary school accommodates an expanded media center and art room. The media center showcases a raised reading platform with lounge pillows and lapdesks. A new music room and kindergarten rooms now exist where classrooms once were. The kindergarten classroom is complete with restrooms and workrooms. A play area, containing both hard and soft surfaces, provides children with a variety of safe play experience.

MT. VERNON CSC Mt. Comfort Elementary

AT A GLANCE: Location: Indianapolis, IN Size: 109,000 sq. ft. Cost: $19,838,700 Type: New Construction Services: Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Interiors, Civil, Technology

The new Mt. Comfort Elementary School for 650 students was based on the previously constructed McCordsville Elementary School. Although the plan components are almost identical in terms of space allocations and educational facility opportunity, the physical expression of the two facilities is remarkably different, as are the mechanical systems. The Mt. Comfort Elementary has a “geo-thermal� mechanical system; while its twin, McCordsville Elementary, has a VAV system. Through the use of different materials, colors, and canopy treatments, each school has a unique and individual identity. The exterior of McCordsville Elementary fits with its location in a commercial/industrial corridor, while the Mt. Comfort Elementary exterior was altered to fit the rural, residential character of the contextual surroundings.

MSD OF LAWRENCE TOWNSHIP Crestview Elementary

AT A GLANCE: Location: Indianapolis, IN Size: 2,700 sq. ft. Cost: $619,000 Type: Renovation Services: Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Interiors, Technology

Crestview Elementary needed to renovate their gymnasium to accommodate a new media center—within a limited timeframe. Located in the center of the school, the old gymnasium was a perfect place for the new media center; however, this would also be the primary challenge for the project. It required a design approach to achieve maximum conversion in the least amount of time. Operating with tight deadlines, Schmidt Associates developed a plan and used threedimensional modeling technology to help visualize the possibilities of a unique, flexible, and creative space. The result was an engaging and interactive set of spaces that take into account the needs of each age and stage of children’s learning lives.

AT A GLANCE: Location: Indianapolis, IN Size: 71,600 sq. ft. Cost: $6,70,000 Type: Addition, Renovation Services: Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Interiors, Civil, Landscape Architecture, Technology

Mary Castle Elementary had outgrown its building due to the growing student body and the ever changing curriculum. To better utilize the current footprint of the building, new centralized restrooms and a new media center are to be built within the existing interior courtyards. The cafeteria will be expanded to maximize cafeteria seating by incorporating a new addition, serving as a multipurpose room and bus loading/drop off. The kitchen will also undergo a renovation to include a double serving line—condensing lunch periods to a timelier pace. By relocating office space to the front of the building, a secured entry will be part of this project as well. Through the use of finishes and imagery, Schmidt Associates has helped Mary Castle Elementary School create a unique brand identifiable by anyone walking through their renovated space. 16

AT A GLANCE: Location: Pittsboro, IN Size: 94,500 sq. ft. Cost: $23,400,000 Type: New Facility Services: Architecture, Electrical, Plumbing, Interiors, Landscape Architecture, Civil, Extended Construction Services

The new 94,500 s.f. Pittsboro Primary School holds up to 600 students in six sections of each grade level. Following several visits to different types of schools throughout the state, the design committee decided upon an “oval track layout�. Using this layout, each grade level is located in a pod off of a central core. The core of the building features shared spaces including the media center, computer lab, small group instruction, art, music, and special education resource rooms.

MSD OF WAYNE TOWNSHIP Chapel Hill 7th and 8th Grade Center

AT A GLANCE: Location: Indianapolis, IN Size: 322,000 sq. ft. Cost: $32,000,000 Type: Addition and Renovation Services: Architecture, Interiors, Landscape Architecture, Construction Administration

The additions and renovations to Fulton Junior High School—now Chapel Hill 7th & 8th Grade Center—were part of a district-wide makeover to develop schools based on smaller learning groups. The school serves students from diverse learning opportunities and socio-economic backgrounds. Recreating this existing junior high school allowed the opportunity to provide equity for all students relative to educational resources. The new identity is enhanced by the school’s visibility along a major street and the new building’s aesthetic. This organization uses the new classroom areas to surround the existing portions of the building, allowing for an entirely new public image. Chapel Hill is the gateway building onto the main campus at the MSD of Wayne Township. Placement of the media center at the main intersection into campus illustrates the importance of providing excellence in education to the students and community of Wayne Township.

“Schmidt Associates helped to design a gateway into our high school campus. While it looks as if it might cost more than a typical school facility, Schmidt Associates’ innovative design stayed well below the DLGF construction cost guidelines.” – DR. TERRY THOMPSON FORMER SUPERINTENDENT 23


VINCENNES CSC

George Rogers Clark Middle

AT A GLANCE: Location: Vincennes, IN Size: 148,600 sq. ft. Cost: $22,000,000 Type: New Construction Services: Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Interiors, Technology, Construction Delivery, LEED Administration

Located in Vincennes, George Rogers Clark Middle School seamlessly blends with the community’s historic buildings, celebrating the rich history of the city, while simultaneously adopting the latest in technological advances. The resulting building achieved the first LEED for Schools certification in the state of Indiana. It is laid out in two zones—public and educational. The public zone—modeled after the historic buildings of the area—includes a media center, cafeteria, gymnasium, and fitness center. The educational zone is built to allow children to work in a project-based educational style. Rich in technology and using energy efficient systems and materials, these cutting-edge learning environments have been created to teach sustainability and energy consciousness to all students.

DANVILLE CSC

Danville Community Middle

AT A GLANCE: Location: Danville, IN Size: 189,100 Cost: $24,500,000 Type: New Facility Services: Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Interiors, Civil, Landscape Architecture, Technology, Construction Administration

The new middle school houses 600 students in grades 5 and 6 and 600 in grades 6 and 7. Designed as two separate schools around shared core spaces—including the gym, cafeteria, music administration, and media center—each classroom holds a maximum of 30 students. The two-story front of the building was constructed with metal stud, structural steel, and masonry veneer. Shared core spaces and back of the building are a pre-engineered metal building. Because of the material choices, the facility came in at a mere $130 per square foot, well below the $146 guideline set by then-Governor Mitch Daniels and the Department of Local Government Finance (DLGF) at the time. The remaining funds were spent on technology in the learning environment. “With Schmidt Associates, their attitude is ‘let us serve your needs.’ They took time to understand our unique academic environment and our concerns for community resources. It was a real team process.” – DR. JOHN MCKINNEY FORMER SUPERINTENDENT 26

AT A GLANCE: Location: Greenwood, IN Size: 160,000 sq. ft. Cost: $27,000,000 Type: New Facility Services: Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Interiors, Civil, Landscape Architecture, Technology, Construction Administration

Schmidt Associates is currently working with Greenwood Community School Corporation on a new, 900-student middle school and a new Student Activity Center (fieldhouse) at Greenwood High School. Both of these projects are part of a bond issue that is being done without a referendum, because of the minimal impact on the circuit breaker. The new Middle School, serving grades 6 through 8, will serve 900 students. Extensive early energy modeling helped determine the most efficient design. The resulting facility has a threestory classroom wing, in addition to other support spaces. It has been designed to be 49% more energy efficient than code with a projected $98,000 in annual utility savings.

28


FROM THE TOP: SITE PLAN; STUDENT ENTRY

“Since July 2013, I have been the Superintendent of Schools in Greenwood.  Schmidt was already involved in some building renovations with the district at that time.  I had not worked with Schmidt prior to coming to Greenwood.  I was so impressed with how they finished the renovations that when it came time to hire an architect for our $43 million project, I recommended to our school board that we don’t conduct any interviews and continue with Schmidt. They quickly established themselves as highly competent, caring, collaborative, and committed to serving our needs. I saw no reason to talk with other firms.” – DR. KENT DEKONINCK SUPERINTENDENT 29

The renovation and additions to Lake Central High School involved removing more than half of the existing building, as well as a 550,000 sq. ft. addition. Using technology to provide greater efficiency, Schmidt Associates created a real-time collaborative process to deliver a design that was unique to the needs of Lake Central High School. The new construction includes a three-story academic wing with 92 new classrooms—including specialty teaching spaces for art, science, vehicle repair, printing, and metalworking. Other new construction included a 50-meter Olympic pool with shared community use, a competition gymnasium, 1,100-seat auditorium, music rehearsal space, and media center. The project also included new athletic facilities with artificial turf football, baseball, and softball fields and more than 1.6 million gallons of underground storm water detention.

Beginning with a community task force—consisting of business leaders, concerned citizens, teachers, parents, and staff—and continuing through a study and many meetings, Plainfield decided a new high school needed to be built. The new facility was designed for 1,600 students with additional capacity for 2,200. Serving grades 9 through 12, it includes more than 80 instructional spaces. The building’s core facilities—as well as the infrastructure and roads around the school—were built with the future expansion in mind. Athletic facilities include a main gymnasium capable of handling sectional basketball competition, and a fieldhouse that not only serves for physical education and competition, but also functions as a “safe place” to be used in an emergency.

Small learning communities build relationships between teachers and their students, as well as the relationship among students. That’s the learning philosophy that drove the design of Decatur Central High School. The school was the first high school in Indiana built specifically for the small learning community concept and features five communities made up of not more than 350 students each. These small learning communities emphasize the relationship, the relevance of subjects to real-life application taught in every classroom, and the rigor and excitement of education felt throughout the school!

Years ago, when it was first constructed, Warsaw Community High School was a progressive educational facility. The school needed to expand and still maintain the original character. Schmidt Associates developed several additions to the existing, award-winning facility. A new performing arts wing featuring a world-class theater with a unique rigging and specially designed sound and lighting systems was constructed. A black box theater—adjacent to the main theatrical space—allows for the inclusion of a television studio, as well as a working radio station. New auditorium, choral, and dance studios augment the teaching environment. The project also involved new physical education and athletic facilities—including a new football stadium, softball and soccer complexes, fitness center, and wrestling room. All of these features are tied together with a new site circulation plan. Additionally, the entire mechanical system was upgraded and automated with new digital controls and fresh air. 40

McKenzie Career Center offers an array of vocational programs, including the culinary arts and cosmetology. These two programs had long outgrown their current spaces and needed to expand. While both provide services to the surrounding community, the new design had to incorporate a dedicated patron entry, while securing the rest of the school and student body. It was also important to make this addition more prominent to the main road—encouraging new patrons into the building. Through the use of new finishes, furniture, and equipment, Schmidt Associates created a unique and timeless identity for each program, fulfilling their unique needs—both for now and for future growth.

FACILITY ASSESSMENTS Schmidt Associates has developed a unique format for effective facility assessments. They include a detailed conditional assessment – a review of current conditions including the exterior envelope, mechanical/electrical systems, and potential interior and exterior improvements required to maintain the facilities for future years. Depending on the scope of work, they also analyze the utilization and capacity assessment for each building by type of space utilization. The goal of our facility assessments is to establish planned, efficient application of capital and operational budgets for building needs in the future. The final product of these studies clearly identifies future facility needs, as well as a prioritization of those needs, with estimated costs and a long-range plan. We have completed more than 115 of these assessment studies over the years including ones for the City of St. Louis and for the Country of Georgia. Below, is a sampling of the corporation we have worked with. •• South Spencer County School Corporation •• Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation •• Randolph Southern School Corporation •• School City of Mishawaka •• Lafayette School Corporation •• West Lafayette Community School Corporation •• South Knox School Corporation •• Lake Central School Corporation •• Madison Community Schools •• New Albany-Floyd County Community School Corporation •• International School of Indiana •• Oak Hill United School Corporation •• Clay Community Schools •• Mississinewa Community School Corporation •• Porter Township School Corporation •• Crawfordsville Community School Corporation •• Randolph Central Schools •• Vigo County School Corporation •• Indianapolis Public Schools
