Size: 130,000 SF
Client: KIPP Cooper Norcross Inc.
Architect: Strada

The KIPP Hatch Middle School project is a complete renovation of a 1920s building with a 3-story 1980s addition. The school, part of the KIPP Cooper Norcross family of public charter schools, serves students from educationally underserved communities and the new location will help accommodate their growing student body.

The 130,000 SF project will maintain the original exterior character of the building and will introduce new basketball courts, a new kitchen with upgraded serving equipment, and a new auditorium featuring integrated stage lighting and state-of-the-art A/V systems. The 1980s addition will receive a new CFMF roof truss system with new sheathing and roofing. The entire building will get new finishes throughout, including flooring, ceilings, lighting, and doors. A new mechanical system will include VRF (variable refrigerant flow) for primary conditions and ERUs (energy recovery units) for fresh air and energy recovery.
