McDonogh 42 Elementary School Renovation

New Orleans, LA

Client: Louisiana Department of Education Recovery School District

Architect: Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

Project Summary

The McDonogh 42 Elementary School Renovation project, built for the Louisiana Department of Recovery School District, included the demolition, restoration, and renovation of a three story 73,672 square foot elementary school campus located in New Orleans, LA. The facility, originally damaged by Hurricane Katrina, houses over 500 students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth and supports approximately 20 classrooms, science laboratories, and art rooms. The elementary school campus was constructed using a monolithic slab on grade concrete foundation and steel structural frame with the original building's concrete. The exterior restoration incorporated the existing brick and a SBS modified bitumen roofing system. The project also featured refurbishment and re-installation of existing doors and windows and an addition of a cafeteria. Due to CORE's focus of restoring the historical elements and preserving existing architectural elements, the McDonogh 42 Elementary School fully recovered from the damage of Hurricane Katrina.
