George Peabody Elementary School Modernization

George Peabody Elementary School Modernization

San Francisco Unified School District

The joint venture of Noll & Tam Architects and Meek Architecture (Meek, Noll & Tam JV Architects) was selected for the architect pool for building improvement projects under SFUSD’s 2011 Proposition A Bond Program. Our team worked on the George Peabody Elementary School Modernization project.  Peabody is a small community school with a strong arts curriculum in the Inner Richmond neighborhood of San Francisco. We thoroughly assessed the existing buildings and looked for opportunities to add a new 150-seat, 5,250 sf multipurpose building to the site. The MN&T team collaborated with the principal and the school community to learn more about how our design for renovation and addition could best enhance the school’s character and offerings. Our assessment report included recommendations for modernization improvements, existing conditions and code review, proposal scope summary and cost estimate, and concept design options. SFUSD has since selected an option and we are currently producing construction documents for the $3M modernization and $2M expansion project.
