New Orleans, LA

Client: Louisiana Department of Education Recovery School District

Architect: Blitch Knevel Architects

Project Summary

The Drew Elementary School Renovation project, completed for the Louisiana Department of Economic Recovery School District, included the addition, demolition, restoration, and renovation of a three-story, 69,000 square foot elementary school campus located in New Orleans, LA. The facility houses approximately 200 primary grade students. The elementary school was constructed utilizing a concrete foundation and a concrete masonry unit block structural frame, an exterior of brick and stucco, and a standing seam membrane roof. The project also included the demolition of original walls, floors, mechanical equipment, and electrical systems and replacement of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. New features include new window glass, an automatic sprinkler system, a state-of-the-art fire alarm system, two restroom towers, and a library reading room. Site work entailed construction of a courtyard play area, covered walkways, and two ADA compliant ramps. With restoration of the school's original wood floors and window sashes, Drew Elementary School now stands fully restored to serve members of the Bywater District of New Orleans.
