KCBA Staff Tour New Colonial Middle School
KCBA staff members from both offices met for lunch and to tour the currently under construction new Colonial Middle School in Plymouth Meeting, PA on July 13th. Led by Project Manager Jim Keiffer, the
KCBA was commissioned by Methacton School District to study a range of renovation and new construction concepts to modernize Arrowhead Elementary School which was originally built in 1974 and features an open concept plan layout. After a thorough vetting process, the district elected to construct a new school capable of fully supporting their evolving educational program. The new school is to be built on the constricted site of the original school and the need to maintain safe ongoing operations during construction greatly contributed to the makeup of the design. The new 86,000 SF school will house a range of innovative spaces including activated corridors and commons spaces, a flexible STEM lab, dedicated art and music suites, and a library/media center with areas to support independent study and group activities.
