Spanning 33,000 sq ft, the new science and technology building at the Isidore Newman School includes three specialty laboratories, nine combination classroom/labs, a maker space and common green space. A steel staircase, intended to be monolithic and sculptural in nature, anchors a three-story-high atrium at the building’s entrance.

Site constraints and the resulting logistical challenges of working on an operating school campus required careful planning and communication to overcome schedule and sequencing risks. Through a collaborative design-build approach, the project team delivered this project within Newman’s budget and schedule with zero change orders.
