Sacred Heart Elementary School Addition

East Grand Forks, MN

Project Overview

Sacred Heart School is a K-12 Catholic school located in East Grand Forks, Minnesota. Increased enrollment over the last several years has created the need for additional classroom space. The addition will add two 4th grade classrooms, two 5th grade classrooms, two 6th grade classrooms, and one pre-school classroom. At Sacred Heart, Faith is very important. so it was vital that we implemented symbols of the Catholic Faith in our design. Examples include the large cross glass curtain wall that illuminates the commons area, and crosses in the classroom windows. Space for murals and other walls that showcase the liturgical art will also be included. The new addition will be constructed to match the existing exterior finishes and key elements of the interior finishes including terrazzo floors and burnished block walls. While designing the addition, consideration was given to maximize the site to allow for the outdoor playground to remain. The playground area was reconfigured and updated with new equipment and a rubber tile surface. The addition is expected to be ready for the start of the 2019/2020 school year.
