Benfield Elementary School was recently featured in a news segment on WBAL, which can be viewed along with an article on the project here.
Henry Adams provided the MEP engineering design for the complete modernization of the 83,500 SF Benfield Elementary School. The main goal of the modernization was to address the building’s inadequacies. Previously, the school had too few classrooms, many classrooms lacked toilet rooms; and the administrative, health and guidance areas, multipurpose center and media center were undersized. To solve these problems, a large addition is being added to the rear of the building to house physical education, foodservice, music and art/science components, as well as community use. A new wing will be added connecting the front wing to the new large rear addition and housing Pre-K and K classrooms, special education classroom and resource room.
The project is expected to be fully constructed in early 2017.
