Roseland Creek Elementary School

Category: Learn
Santa Rosa, CA

A new campus, this project included the structural design of two-story classroom and administration buildings, as well as a tall, multi-purpose building and gymnasium. Cost effective steel and wood framing systems were used for the classroom buildings. An open glass and structural steel second floor bridge links the buildings across the playground. The large multi-use building has exposed long-span steel open web roof joists with special steel braced frames. Tall freestanding stucco walls reflect the Latino community and student influence. Sunscreens provide solar relief at expansive glazing designed for natural light and exterior connection. The project survived intense budget constrictions and the design team worked with the contractor on many fronts to deliver the best value to the school district and students.
