St. Anthony Park - Remodeling Project
In spring 2016, St. Anthony Park Elementary began the design process for building renovations that is based on SPPS’ 10‐year Facilities Master Plan (FMP) to ensure its school buildings are able to meet the 21st century learning needs of students.
A draft of the project work scope or plan is also available (please note these plans are conceptual designs and do not necessarily represent the work that will actually be done to the school); the project scope in brief:
An addition will be built to house the main office, cafeteria and kitchen.
A second story will also be built over the current single story to add instructional spaces.
Break ground: Summer 2017; Completion: Ready for fall 2018
Variances: The approved variances are for site coverage and to allow for less on-site parking than required to maintain as much open outdoor space as possible; variances were approved on January 4, 2017 by the City of St. Paul.
To help inform the renovations, a School Design Committee was formed and made up of district and academic leaders, teachers, students, families, community members and key partners. Through the guidance of a Steering Committee, the School Design Committee collaborated with architects and engineers on the design concept for the project. To provide input on the renovations, the School Design Committee participated in four workshops. The goals, activities and outcomes of each workshop is outlined below.
WORKSHOP 1: WHERE ARE WE?
Goal: To orient the School Design Committee to their charge and the framework of the FMP to date including the facilities Vision, Principles, Standards and the priorities and project scope identified for your school.
