Scott Kyle, Project Manager/Designer (while with BCWH Architects)
Mr. Kyle was the project manager/designer as part of a team that included a principal-in-charge, two intern architects, and an interior designer. The $4.5 million renovation of this K-5, 55,000 sf, 500 student, 1950s neighborhood school focused on daylighting, green materials, and a preconditioned-air HVAC/unit ventilator system, to help turn around the direction of teaching conditions of the school.
A four-point system was devised that accomplished exterior solar shading, an interior light-shelf to bounce light from the clear high windows onto the ceiling, tinted, low-e vision glazing, and a tack-board surface with rigid insulation panels for greater thermal efficiency in the expansive window system. This was all done in a vernacular style fitting of the 1950s original building with the result being a new identity and longevity within its current neighborhood home.
