NORTHVIEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Unified School District 383 - Manhattan, Kansas
61,000 Square Feet
As part of a district $97.5 Million bond issue improvement plan, Northview Elementary was expanded by 16,500 square feet. New additions include a Cafeteria and Kitchen, Administrative Area, Entrance and Conference Space, and a Classroom Wing. Placement of the additions on the site maintain existing setbacks and are placed to maintain open space. Areas for future building additions were also considered and kept clear of utilities and other items.
Improvements for the existing 44,500 square foot school include security, aesthetic, environmental and life safety, including installation of a fire sprinkler system. Renovations also include development of grade and subject-specific spaces for art, music and computers, as well as a kindergarten wing and special needs classrooms.
The design allows for after-hours use of gymnasium and cafeteria spaces while not compromising security in the rest of the building. Construction was phased to permit continuous occupancy throughout the normal school year.
