Project Overview

On a tiny site, this renovation/addition project strategically added 8,000 SF to the school without encroaching on the play area. The improved school building now cradles a multi-level plaza with outdoor dining, an amphitheater, and a play area.

Our Approach

MK provided site/civil engineering, landscape architecture, and cost estimating for this elementary school project, to fully renovate the building and supplement the square footage with two small additions. The entrance was designed to be more accessible and welcoming. Service areas and utilities were improved as part of this work, and a microbioretention facility designed for stormwater management.

MK’s participation in planning and design improves this high school, seen as a lynchpin for revitalizing this neighborhood which borders the Fort Meade Army installation.
