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 designed this new charter high school for 400 students on a former commercial site. Located directly adjacent to an active rail line and I-95, the building was carefully oriented to shield classrooms and educational spaces from roadway noise and visual distractions. The new facility presents a modern image through the use of stucco, glass, and metal panel materials that reflect Tacony Academy’s progressive mission of promoting learning through the art of invention. The program features a full complement of classrooms and labs as well as a combination cafeteria/auditorium, music rooms, library, and gymnasium.
