Georgian Heights Elementary School

Demolition to New-Build.

This new elementary school for the Columbus City School District replaced an older, smaller school in the district. The new facility was built on the same site after demolition of the existing school.

The new school has been designed for up to 550 students and is LEED® Gold Certified with the USGBC. The new school features separate dining and gym spaces which can be used in conjunction with each other, a media center, special needs classrooms, an art room and music room.

In association with Burt Hill, a Stantec Company, M+A designed this new school to interact with the school’s environmental learning program with exterior learning and play areas. Many public meetings were held to show neighbors, students and parents, and faculty plans for the new school and gather their feedback. The new school was completed in plenty of time for the start of the 2012-2013 school year.
