The asbestos-laden exterior curtain wall system was removed, and a new system was installed. A newly added elevator provides access to all levels of the building. The elevator addition, with its angled black panels and brick, provides a stark contrast to the new anodized curtain wall façade. A new entrance lobby includes a two-story atrium and reception area.
The second-floor corridor was reconstructed and has updated finishes, seating areas and display areas for artwork created by staff and students. The renovations have transformed the facility into a modern administration building that is inviting to students, parents, faculty, administration and the entire community.
