Sequoyah Elementary School Renovation & Addition

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

As part of Oklahoma City's $700 million MAPS for Kids capital improvement program, this $4.3 million renovation and addition project provides badly needed  teaching space and long overdue improvements to a 36,000 SF school in northwest Oklahoma City originally built in 1930. The renovation of the existing facility creates a new media center, administrative offices, additional special needs classrooms, and an expanded kitchen. Other components of this overhaul include new lighting and ceilings, ADA upgrades, technology enhancements, and new finishes throughout. The 17,000 SF addition will add nine new classrooms, a new stage, multi-use cafeteria, and much needed furniture and equipment storage. Site improvements include a new drop off lane and visitor parking area, new fencing, additional landscaping, new site lighting, and additional playground equipment. Construction phasing on this project is especially complicated because this facility employs a year-round school calendar lacking a traditional extended summer vacation.
