Kappe, Project Manager, while with Powell & Partners
A Plan Prioritizing the Quality of the Educational Environment
Ron Kappe as Project Manager conducted an extensive
feasibility study and budget development for this 50,000 square foot campus located in the Fillmore District of San Francisco.
We also provided a comprehensive Masterplan for the site, as well as programming services for the adjacent community center and pre-school.
Key Project Considerations
A series of much-needed room use and building changes were necessary in order to significantly improve the learning environment of this elementary school campus
Some important facility and aesthetic upgrades were required at the community center and pre-school
Key Recommendations of the Plan
Introduce a new library and computer labs
Improve the once dim and loud cafeteria area with windows, paint, and wall coverings
Do remedial work to stop leaks and water problems that were occurring in the building and at the multi-tiered play yards
Solve light and ventilation problems with window replacements
Install a complete fire alarm system, and conduct accessibility upgrades for the bathrooms and drinking fountains
Do electrical and mechanical upgrades, install new windows, and restore a striking mural, all located at the community center and pre-school adjacent to the elementary school
