Creative Renovation Upgrades Older School
Renovations allow school systems the cost-effective solution of continuing to use existing facilities, but with considerable improvements. In this case, changing the back of the school to the front provided an opportunity to update its appearance and make better use of space.
One of the oldest schools in the district, Bay Creek Elementary includes the 1975 main building, a gymnasium built in 2004, and another classroom wing from 2008. All remain part of the campus, but this renovation flipped the school’s orientation from west to east. The new front entrance includes a security vestibule and consists of a new wing for the administrative offices and five new classrooms. New connecting hallways, sidewalks, and a courtyard increase campus continuity. Other improvements include an expanded cafeteria, a new kitchen, improved playgrounds, and an outdoor classroom. Car and bus traffic are now separated.
