Ojus Elementary

North Miami Beach, FL

Ojus Elementary is an urban school on a small site in the City of North Miami Beach. Zyscovich was commissioned to perform design services for a 538-student station classroom addition. The firm first confirmed the educational program and improvements required by the project. 

The final scope of work comprised a new three-story facility with a new prototype kitchen/dining facility and 27 classrooms, additional staff parking and reconfiguration of the existing staff parking lot, the replacement of the existing P.E. Shelter, new play ground equipment, two new basketball courts, and upgrade of the existing electrical service. The work was carefully phased around the existing school, playfields and portables to maintain a completely operational elementary school while construction took place. Once the new classroom building was complete, the portables were demolished and the new P.E. Shelter, playfields and entry drive/parking lots were constructed.
