To accommodate the early childhood and elementary grades, Bray designed a three-story 38,058 square foot addition with classrooms on the upper two levels and a serving kitchen, cafeteria, multi-purpose room, and day care in the lowest level. The addition helps to achieve a more unified district with accommodation for long-range growth.
The major renovated spaces at Belleville Elementary School include science, art, music, library, and the secure entry/office. The other classrooms, corridors and key support spaces received new finishes including flooring, ceilings, casework, and paint. The entire building was provided with new HVAC systems, lighting and a fire sprinkler system. Site work included a new package lot with a parent drop-off loop to separate bus traffic from parent and visitor traffic.
Bray Architects successfully supported the Belleville School District in passing a $20,750,000 referendum question to complete an addition and renovations to the middle + high school, as well as relocate early childhood and elementary grades to Belleville Intermediate School (now called Belleville Elementary School).
