CARNALL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

This 18,762 square foot addition includes five primary classrooms, four kindergarten classrooms, two multi-purpose classrooms, a new media center, and new Administration Offices. The addition features a new main entry with a two story, natural lighted entry foyer which is attached directly to the new Administration Office area and to an eighty foot long covered drop-off area. The new main public entry is now a secure entry, where visitors must first enter the Administration area before going into the Classroom areas of the school. The building's exterior appearance was updated with new metal panel parapet walls and the colorful use of metal wall panels at all of its major entries. Site Improvements included enlarging the existing parking lot with associated stormwater drainage structures and area lighting. The work included relocations for both public sanitary sewer lines and electrical lines. The one year construction process was coordinated with the school's schedule allowing for no teaching interruptions.
