Irwin Academy Modernization
This new multipurpose building is a welcome addition to the existing Irwin Academy Elementary School campus. The facility is comprised of a new entry lobby, two music classrooms, performance area, full service kitchen, toilet and service rooms, and a 600 occupant multi-use room. Construction proved to be a challenge as the one acre site was inaccessible from two sides, combined with an existing grade change of over twenty-two feet. The finish floor at the northeast corner of the building is ten feet above the adjacent street. A vehicular food service ramp and receiving dock was incorporated into the project to eliminate the maintenance concerns with a traditional lift dock.
