St. Thomas More School Administration Building & School Renovations
Shortly after completing an addition to its existing cafeteria, St. Thomas More realized it needed a complete review of the campus it shared with St. Thomas More Catholic Church as well as an assessment of its facilities if it was to meet the educational demands of the children of its parish into the future. Coleman Partners Architects was engaged to perform these duties as well as provide complete programming and architectural services for phase 1 of the resulting master plan. After meeting with school administrators, parents, and church officials a plan was developed that envisioned new administrative offices, media center, and technology classrooms; renovated science centers, gymnasium, and student centers; and a complete technology and security upgrade. These facilities are designed to provide the type and quality of academic areas required for STM's pre-K thru 8th grade technology-rich curriculum as well as a reinvigorated identity within the parish and to the larger community. These renovated and expanded academic, artistic, and athletic facilities provide the much needed tools for faculty and staff to adequately prepare the parish's children for success in high school, and beyond.
This project received the 2016 Silver Rose Award.
