Carolina Park Elementary School
About the Project
Thompson Turner Construction and LS3P Architects were selected as a design-build team by Richland School District Two to provide design and construction services for the new 747-student Jackson Creek Elementary School. The project is located in an area of the district to relieve overcrowding at nearby elementary schools. The 26-acre site has some unique challenges, including wetlands, that necessitated a compact footprint and two-story classroom “neighborhood” layout to accommodate the necessary 126,000 square feet. The building and site design incorporate flexible indoor and outdoor learning environments.
