Kingsbury Elementary School is located in the northwest section of Washington, D.C., in an entire block on 14th street. MMD performed a feasibility study for the Kingsbury school expansion not long before the Kingsbury Center reached out for design services for a renovation to their campus. Soon after, the client decided to add an addition to their scope of work. This gave MMD the opportunity to design a space that spanned the two existing wings while still allowing for future construction beneath the new bridge. MMD worked with the structural engineer to design an addition that would allow for basement and first-floor expansion in the future, making the expansion process affordable and more efficient.
One of the best contributions the MMD design team provided in this project, and one of the main reasons the client chose the team, was due to out of the box thinking to find sustainable solutions to phase the project, and a comprehensive analysis of land development. The client was able to organize a schedule with construction goals, and build 50% of the construction goal.
