Hillsboro School District needed to make significant upgrades to the historic Reedville Elementary. The old portables were replaced with a permanent, modular building containing classrooms and a new cafeteria. Community members were happy that the project preserved the historic charm of the exterior of the school, while providing needed additions and upgrades. A parent/bus drop-off area was added to mitigate traffic and safety concerns, and the addition of new playground equipment and all-weather synthetic turf gives students more room to play. Frontage improvements were also made, including the addition of a bus-turnout.
During this project, 3J was working with both the County and Hillsboro School District on separate projects located in the same area. 3J proposed working on the projects in a collaborative manner to streamline the design process and reduce construction time and community impact.
