SCDS STEAM Building, Savannah, GA

Independent Savannah School Innovates With New STEAM Center

The project consists of the full programming, design and construction administration services for a new, $9M two-story 35,000 SF STEAM Center on Savannah Country Day’s independent school campus in Savannah, Georgia. The new facility is geared at enhancing the school’s mission of balancing all three aspects of school life: the academic, the athletic, and the artistic for its 260 students. New spaces include science, mathematics, fabrication/robotics labs and classrooms as well as art studios, admin/counseling spaces and a new 3,000 SF student commons space.

The facility will be constructed directly adjacent to the existing Middle School Building on the site of the current library and features early site packages to expedite the schedule given that the project is being constructed on an occupied campus. It is being constructed via CM-at-Risk.
