Quandel was hired by Commonwealth Connections Academy, a publicly-funded K-12 cyber-charter school, to be the General Contractor for the conversion of an existing private automobile museum into a new Teachers’ Center. The 18,900 square-foot facility houses studio, multipurpose, and lab space for approximately 140 students and faculty, as well as conference rooms, offices, break rooms, storage, and support spaces.
Included in the project was selective demolition and complete renovations of the interior and exterior, as well as canopy additions. The building exterior was re-clad with metal wall panels and fiber-cement board siding panels, fully-adhered membrane and metal roofing at the small additions, and aluminum storefront and entrance systems. Casework, interior finishes, and specified mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems were also updated.
