Mount Vernon Community School Corporation was experiencing rapid growth, so a new K to 4 elementary school was necessary.

For security, a predominant visitor/event entry for the gymnasium and cafetorium is adjacent to the administration area, allowing for a clear sightline from the offices as the building is approached from the parking lot. It also provides a point of check-in for visitors.

McCordsville Elementary is a masonry building with a combination of membrane roofing and standing-seam metal roofing. The HVAC system consists of a four-pipe variable-air-volume system with dedicated
