FEATURED PROJECTS

THE POWER OF PLACE BASED LEARNING

INNOVATION FOR NEXT LEVEL LEARNING

JOHN S MCCAIN III ES

Buckeye Elementary School District's 9th school aspires to break the traditional school design formula and become a model for schools of the future. Designed to have three learning communities based on age groups K-2, 3-5 and 6-8, each has dedicated maker spaces and shared breakout spaces to facilitate individualized learning opportunities. The conceptual design theme of the project, Taking Flight, is derived from the life of its namesake, the late Sen. John McCain, who served as a jet fighter pilot on an aircraft carrier during his time in the Navy and conceptualizes the school as a springboard for its students to take flight in their lives and education, just as an aircraft carrier facilitates the flight of military aircraft. The world class education provided here will be housed in a high performance learner centric facility that will enable the staff in their mission to cultivate and nurture the skills their students need to prepare them to their futures.

A CULTURE OF COLLABORATION

The Madison Meadows Middle School is an International Baccalaureate school and the client wanted the design to represent the ideals and culture of the educational program.  The IB program uses a global curriculum and encourages students to become empathetic, self-motivated learners who will contribute to the world positively.  They believe in creating learning communities where students can fully engage and not feel inhibited by barriers. This project consists of a Middle School replacement classroom, administration and media center building on an existing campus. Classroom suites include rooms with a 24’ wide operable glass partition to allows the room to be opened to a large collaboration space. The project consisted of a new 43,000 SF building that replaced two existing buildings with an Administration, Media Center, Art Room, Design Labs, Science Classrooms, an outdoor Science Yard, a Special Education Suite, an outdoor classroom on the second floor, and 11 regular classrooms.

LIVING, LEARNING, AND
WORKING SPACES

Living, learning and working initiatives have provided residency halls and off campus living to first generation students as they persistent to and through graduation and launch their professional career. More than just apartments, these programs provide students with the supports they need to advance academically and build the resilience they need to graduate. Through private partnerships, similar teacher residency programs focus on recruitment and retention of top talent to the profession. These unique spaces provide both both affordable housing options as well as integrated professional development centers and resources to support the first years of teaching. As a strategic partner, BCCG is committed to design and construct communities of practice that are both flexible and affordable.

REPURPOSE AND REVITALIZE 

Great-Hearts-Veritas-Charter-School.jpg

Veritas Preparatory Academy, a founding member of the prestigious Great Hearts Academies, serves 6th-12th grade students by providing the finest liberal arts education possible for families in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Offering a challenging yet rewarding curriculum focused on the development of deep appreciation for the true, the good, and the beautiful. Embodying those values in design, the Veritas facility was born through the  renovation of a vacant Motorolla Adminstrative Building.  While adaptive reuse projects require careful site selection and attention to due diligence, the potential benefits to both communities and school systems are substantial. A revitalized ghost box can spur tangible impacts on community development, reduce landfill impacts, reduce sprawl, preserve greenfield sites, and promote recycling on a large scale.  And the Intangible For schools, adaptive reuse of these buildings may offer significant time savings in providing much-needed school facilities, and generate opportunities for innovative design, state-of-the-art educational facilities, and inspiring spaces in which to teach and learn.
